The latter is canceled spontaneously because of the overloaded list of tasks. Official ending 11.45 clock, in fact never before 12.30 clock. That's why Hannes prophylactically approves the coffee and lets his apple crack between his teeth.
The apple is new, it used to be cake. Since the internal "fit-for-work" program, the members of the Executive Committee have selected the intermediate catering according to the model approach.
The non-favorite job reaches him
In the middle of the physical and mental preparations his mobile phone rings - the office number is already switched to the secretariat. His boss is looking for him. "Could you keep the minutes of the meeting today? Mrs. Blatter is ill. Because you have the least agenda items, I want to give you this important task. You know, basically the secretary is the most important person - next to the boss. "
"I do," Hannes says, slightly grumpy. He unwillingly thinks, "I have to. By the way, the most important person '... a clumsy flattery. "Hannes feels just not as the second most important in the moment Company.
The session begins
On time - as always - everyone welcomes friendly and the boss opens with the same for years, always the same official, funny saying "then we'll burst". A short, staged warm-up laugh and you sit down - as always - in the same places.
The boss starts: "I want to greet you all warmly". Hannes writes and stumbles over the word "would like". Why "want"? He could just do it. Should Hannes now write "Letter of Intent" on agenda item 1, Begrüßung '? There is no time for him to think about it. Jigsaw it continues with the words "we have today a 'sporting' agenda (even this saying is always the same, as well as the calculated laugh of all).
The agenda items are swept through
The sales manager presents the sales figures of the past week. These look bad for a long time. His voice was already soaked with more self-confidence. "Why did not you accelerate?" Asks the boss. The sales manager: "The market situation is extraordinary. The competitors meanwhile produce almost exclusively in China and have better prices. "
The production manager shifts uneasily on his chair: "We are already working with the costs at the lower limit. I can not accept that we are to blame for the bad sales figures. " The boss intervenes and suppresses the blame with the words: "You just have to look where we have the opportunity to optimize, so that we can cost a little more competitive." All nod nonverbally and with murmured "just right". The boss has once again summed it up. Hannes keeps a hard time until the expression "you have to stop ..." stops. In his protocol now missing who by what time. Maybe this statement is just a declaration of intent.
The second half begins
Already one is in arrears with the agenda items. The boss proposes to give up the coffee break for once. "No problem" it echoes from the round.
The HR Leader points out that perhaps one could plan a full-day meeting to break down the mountain of unfinished business. "Good idea", is the echo, the boss specified: "That we should tackle". Hannes writes and thinks "declaration of intent or goal?"
Memoranda of Understanding
In brisk staccato, the members of the executive board got involved in the business. Hannes watches as some officially write on the tablet. When he returns to his office he becomes eMails received by his colleagues from the management who wrote them in the morning. That can be done well camouflaged.
Mark the nerd, but eMails write. Hannes gets caught a few more times at the thought "declaration of intent". He makes a sport of it, phrases such as "one should" or "one would have to count" in a personal statistics. 7 times, you have to 'and 1 times, you should'. Oh ... after all, "7: 1" ... was that a football World Cup summer in Brazil ...
After four hours of busy sitting, the boss comes to the end. "I hope that your injury time did not hurt you". Always the same saying, but since the World Cup title of footballer he gets at least a positive aftertaste. It is 12.30 o'clock and the boss says goodbye with the usual departure: "I would like to thank you". It would have been the last letter of intent of the morning ....
