[Link] What can the 1944 OSS manual teach us before we all return to sabotage the office?

Anti-patterns:

Insist on doing everything through “channels.”
Make “speeches”. Talk as frequently as possible and at great length.
Refer all matters to committees. Make the committees as large as possible – never less than five.
Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes and resolutions.
Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open discussion on those decisions.
Advocate “caution.” Advise colleagues to “avoid haste” which “might result in embarrassment” later on.
Question every decision as to whether it lies within the jurisdiction of the group or whether it might conflict with the policy of some higher echelon.
