The Five Meetings Every CEO Should Lead
When your whole company works in the same room, news gets around fast. Impromptu meetings, discussions over lunch, and overheard phone calls mean the team usually has a good idea of what’s going on.
But as a company grows, more formal methods of communication are needed to keep everyone in the loop. And when communication breaks down, it leads to a set of common issues. How many of these do you recognise?
- The team aren’t sure of the status. When actions are promised but not followed up, the team can lose trust that anything will happen.
- The team can’t see the big picture. Many people don’t have enough information to understand why certain decisions are taken, or what others are working on.
- The team don’t have clarity on what to do. Expectations are hard to manage, especially when situations change on a regular basis.
- The team sit on feedback for too long. When feedback isn’t given or received, emotional baggage builds up and weighs on everybody’s minds.
- The team feel that their work isn’t recognised. Non-visible work is taken for granted, as are the sacrifices that go into making it happen.
There comes a point when regular meetings are needed to address these issues. Founders can go from virtually no formal meetings at all, to a calendar so full of them that they have little time left for actual work.
So, what are the most important meetings for founders and CEOs and how should you run them to avoid these issues?
