Office hours

>> Friday, December 18, 2009

Very interesting idea. Clear your calendar and be available to your co-workers and customers.

"The concept of "office hours" for business goes back to a universal ritual from our college days. We'd take classes with professors who were busy, distracted from teaching with research in the lab or the library, and otherwise remote and unapproachable.  
But we knew that for a couple of hours, at least one day a week, we could stop by their office, ask for advice, try out an idea, and get the guidance we needed. 
So maybe it's time for you to join the movement. Why not carve out an hour or two a week, tell your colleagues and customers that you have cleared your schedule, that you'll be sitting in your office and that you hope to hear what they're worried about, excited about, or confused about."
