We guess Harvard Business Review doesn’t think of themselves as ‘old school’.
And, if they keep coming up with good posts like this one, we agree.
HBR has recommended in this article bringing back some old school business practices, a novel idea. Don’t tell Silicon Valley.
Some of the practices considered for preservation are dressing well, making meetings distraction-free, lengthen lunch (now that’s really retro; what’s next? Two or three martinis?). Be punctual, take a real vacation.
