009: The Power of Meetings
www.closequartersbusiness.net In this episode we are going to talk about meetings. Yes, the dreaded business meeting. But don’t worry, I have some great tips for you to follow so you can make sure your business meetings don’t put folks to sleep, turn employees off to being engaged, or make you look like a knucklehead! Now meetings can be very useful and there are different types of meetings. There are share-holder meetings, personnel meetings, progress meetings, Heck, you can have meetings about meetings. Trust me, I have been in those, and yes, they were at the Federal Government. No matter why you are having the meeting, some simple rules apply; the meeting should be specific, you should only invite those absolutely needed, and you must understand what makes a meeting BAD! So you can avoid it. In his book, Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable About Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business, Patrick Lencioni talks about four types of meetings: The Daily Check-in The Weekly Tactical The Monthly Strategic The Quarterly Off-Site Here I want to talk about the first 3. We were already having daily check-ins and somewhat of a weekly tactical meeting to discuss promos and quick-fixes to things that popped up. For us we had to decide WHY we wanted to have a business (or staff) meeting each month. We asked ourselves what information was important enough to pull employees together once a month and sit down to review? This can be difficult.
