BOSTON (Reuters) - The Management Tip of the Day offers quick, practical management tips and ideas from Harvard Business Review and HBR.org (www.hbr.org). Any opinions expressed are not endorsed by Reuters.

“Every important meeting has a defining moment that can lead to breakthrough results. These moments are often preceded by uncertainty. When the group is not sure what to do next, there is an opportunity for someone to take action and move things forward. Before your next critical meeting, think about when those moments might happen and visualize what you would do. You don’t need a detailed plan, just the mental alertness and awareness of the opportunities and how you would seize them.”

- Today’s Management Tip was adapted from “Are You Prepared for Your Next Defining Moment?” by Tsun-yan Hsieh.
