Years ago, during my lengthy stay in Purgatory (also known as corporate management) I had a boss who insisted we all stand during meetings in which an important decision needed to be made, especially if that decision would require compromise. His premise was that people are much more motivated to solve a problem after an hour on their feet than they are after four hours (or days) sitting on their asses pontificating.
Instead of “standing their ground,” people are more likely to “stand and deliver.”
I’m thinking we need to send someone to remove all the chairs in Congress.
What do you think?
