Conducting a good church staff meeting

Conducting a good church staff meeting

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?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
