Rob, "finish[ing] each others' sentences" isn't synergy. It's hijacking. It's the conversational form of multi-tasking.

We need to hear where the other person is going with his or her thought. Presuming we know is disrespectful -- and could severely limit the outcome, especially when the boss decides to help everyone finish their sentences.

So, how to remember one's idea while another person is talking? Jot it down.

Rob Davlin

What are your thoughts on interrupting, should one wait their turn at the risk of losing their thought or should we finish each others' sentences to reach synergy?
