Are Your Conference Calls Like This ?!?

by admin on May 24, 2016

Tweet This is what most conference calls are like… Get your employees to all read the book “Meetings Suck” – and you won’t have to endure another one like that video either… http://tinyurl.com/hkrrkum...

Mind Blowing Door Openers

by admin on May 02, 2016

Tweet Two years ago I was speaking at the 20th anniversary of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) in Las Vegas. It is not unusual for people to come up after I present to say hello, ask questions, or ask for my contact info. Not a big deal and it usually doesn’t result in much more than a ...

Meetings Suck…

by admin on April 30, 2016

Tweet Actually, meetings don’t suck.  We suck at running meetings… We’d never send our kids off to little league without teaching them the basics, like throwing & catching a ball, and how to at least swing the bat. Why then, do companies send their employees into meetings – to attend them, to plan them, or ...

Meetings Don’t Suck, We Suck At Running Meetings – See Here…

Tweet We spend more time teaching our kids how to play sports like baseball than we do teaching our employees how to run meetings. We spend time with our kids playing catch, showing them how to throw a ball, and how to bat.  We spend hours with our kids teaching them sports, and yet most ...

What Is Your Meeting Closer

by admin on November 07, 2011

Tweet Always close your staff meetings with this simple question: “Who’s doing what, and by when?” Have each person in the meeting acknowledge what they’re committed to doing, and by when. This ensures that people don’t start projects based on items that were merely being discussed in the meeting. You also make it nearly impossible ...

Goal Setting & Review

by admin on August 25, 2011

Tweet ‘GS&R’ for short is perhaps the most high impact meeting type I’ve used. I started using them in 1986 when I worked with College Pro Painters, and over the years I’ve learned how to make these meetings extremely effective. GS&R is a one-on-one meeting that you have with each person who reports directly to ...

Do You Know Your Meeting Role??

by admin on June 27, 2011

Tweet Every meeting should have a Chair, a Timekeeper and Participants. The Chair classifies the meeting type upon invitation to the meeting, announces it at the start of the meeting, and guides the agenda. The Chair also closes discussion five minutes before the end of the meeting to ensure that people can get to their ...

It’s time for WAR! (Meetings)

by admin on April 22, 2011

Tweet A company’s leadership teams need a weekly meeting structure to update each other and stay on the same page. ‘Weekly Action Review,’ or a WAR meeting is a weekly ninety minute meeting that each department holds for their entire team. The format is based on a process called ‘Forum Meetings’ used by Entrepreneurs Organization ...

Respect Time

by admin on December 07, 2009

Tweet When I lectured at MIT at the Entrepreneurial Masters Program, I promised the CEOs in the class that we’d start on time. When I actually delivered on that promise, they were dumbfounded. If CEOs weren’t present at the start of class, or hadn’t returned to the class after a break, we shut the door ...

Take Back Your Meetings

by admin on December 03, 2009

Tweet If I asked everyone reading this blog if you’d ever been in one of those meetings where people say a lot and nothing gets resolved, virtually every hand would go up. If you make decisions for a company, this shouldn’t be the norm. Getting to a place where your meetings mean something once again ...
