Dorsey leads two companies, each of which are in important phases. So how does Dorsey manage to do double duty for such difficult jobs?Apparently one thing that’s not necessary is a desk at either company. He shuttles between the two companies’ offices at regular intervals. Mornings are spent at Twitter, afternoons at Square. Dorsey is famous for keeping to a regimented weekly schedule. On Mondays for example, he meets with the senior management team at Twitter, for five hours. At 1:30pm, he allegedly goes to Square and does the same thing. In the end, he has a whopping ten hours of meetings every Monday. Conveniently, however, the two headquarters are just a block apart. He also has a strict no phones or laptops policy during these meetings. But Doresey’s not the only CEO to hold lengthy chats with his team. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has an eight-hour meeting with his senior leadership team once per month to get them on the same page. Llike Nadella, Dorsey’s approach is intended to avoid wasted time in a series of meetings spread across an entire week.
