69 Of 261: My Worst Nightmare

261 cadence meetings weekly sync Dec 22, 2022
69 of 261 Banner


Nothing is worse for me than when I'm in a meeting and time feels wasted or unfocused. 

I can literally feel my skin crawling.

I get frustrated and impatient.

I end up wanting to take over, and then I'm in danger of bulldozing.

I imagine you feel this way too when tangents are flying and no decisions are getting nailed down.

Here's a solution that works for me and my team—

  • Same time, same place, and same agenda every week
  • Bulk of the time is reserved for the group to solve problems and address opportunities
  • We take time to clarify what we're really trying to solve
  • Always capture actions and follow-up steps with assigned due dates
  • ***We ALL respect and agree to play by these rules

I've outlined how we've mastered fun, productive meetings here.

Take it and see how it works for you.
