SHARP ETIQUETTE: More Tips For Sharp Meetings

Finding it hard to stay sharp in staff meetings? Why not try some more of these neat little exercises.

Not only will it make meetings more interesting but your fellow work mates will become suddenly more alert and maintain a respectful distance:

During a meeting:

1. Walk directly up to a colleague and stand nose to nose with him for 1 minute

2. Mount the desk and walk along its length before taking your seat

3. Reflect sunlight into everyone's eyes off your watch face

4. Repeat every idea they express in a baby voice while moving your hand like a chattering mouth

5. Hum 'We'll meet again' throughout

6. Bend momentarily under the table then emerge wearing contact lenses that white out your eyes
