  You spend a huge amount of time in meetings; make it time well spent. I’m in the midst of a series on better meetings. I started with how to split different topics into weekly, monthly, and quarterly meetings. Then I dove in with detailed instructions on running great weekly and monthly meetings. Today, I’m […]

Meetings are where team goodness should happen, but meetings these days tend to be awful. I’m in the midst of a series on better meetings. I started with how to split different topics into weekly, monthly, and quarterly meetings. Then I dove in with detailed instructions on running a great weekly meeting. Today, I’m onto […]

  In my previous post, I outlined the ways you can improve your meetings by creating a structure that differentiates meetings based on their purpose. I recommend that you build a meeting structure with weekly operations meetings; monthly business builder meetings; and quarterly strategic directions meetings.

Many of the team members I’m working with right now feel caught between two opposing forces. On the one hand, they’re living in matrix structures that require tightly aligned team behavior and interdependence.

  In my previous post, I talked about the blight of teams today: the overpowering compulsion to go fast. I’m not delusional and arguing for a return to the leisurely pace of the good old days. I’m just worried that teams that try to go fast actually go slowly. The problem lies in the difference […]
