Many executive leadership teams spend several hours per week in meetings together. When you consider the salaries and the many other demands on their time, you want to be sure you are having effective weekly meetings every week! The only way you'll reach your Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) is to have the perfect Rhythm of meetings.
Make sure you establish a habit of doing everything possible to only having meetings that add value. Keep them future-focused, do not give status updates, that is the past. Have discussions that lead you to make the necessary adjustments to achieve the company plan. Now that you have a staff meeting agenda template, make sure that you actually use it!
One of the best ways to increase the effectiveness of your meetings is to appoint a great weekly team meeting facilitator. A great meeting facilitator will help you make sure that every voice gets heard, that action items are captured and that the meeting stays on track following the agenda.
