Plan fewer, more productive, meetings.
Meetings are costly in terms of executive time. Have you considered the value of these gatherings? Are they productive? Are they planned for? Are decisions followed up on?
The Board meeting; weekly sales meeting; what do they achieve?
Successful entrepreneurs often find themselves immersed in tasks as CEOs that they never contemplated doing and don’t particularly enjoy. The excitement of creating something new is replaced by the mundane. Delegation, discovering the leaders within and communicating effectively with all your people will reinvigorate you and your colleagues to allow the team to achieve the success you all deserve. This can be achieved through fewer, better planned meetings where everybody contributes and constructive decisions are arrived at. The time preparing and following up on meetings is more important than the event itself.
LEAD YOURSELF, LEAD OTHERS, LEAD TOGETHER.
Every member of your team has something to bring to the table; discover the leaders within.
The problems associated with leading a not-for-profit entity are every bit as real as those of profit
oriented businesses. In fact they can be more daunting because volunteers may choose to quit more
readily than a salaried employee.
For the sake of your team you must ‘dream big.’
If you honestly believe that there is room for improvement then start the conversation.
