He has started writing his emails during the meetings to minimise wasted time. You almost certainly need to use all four quadrants. In fact, many senior teams have stopped holding team work sessions altogether because they could not make them effective.

Their business has doubled its revenues this year. The great thing about Tim is that when he is frustrated everyone knows about it. Their process intentionally goes through all four quadrants in a planned and cohesive way.
