Over at the Endowed Parishes blog they’ve compiled a list of ideas for conducting a good staff meeting. Nothing earth shattering, but how about this one?
“Avoid the Check-in Trap: … Going around the table and updating each other on what’s happening is the management equivalent of asking each individual player on a basketball team at halftime how many points they scored. There’s nothing strategic about that. It says nothing about the total picture – whether your team is on task or not. Remember, your staff is your eyes and ears. Make sure your senses are fully attuned.” Oasis Outsourcing
It’s all here.
Is there anything you especially endorse in this list? What have you learned about effective staff meetings?
