Increase Production, Save Time with Staff Meetings
You succeed as a practice owner when you leverage your time. Like a car jack helps you lift a two-ton car, an hour of leveraged time produces the same results as dozens of regular work hours.
For example, staff meetings are a vital tool for leveraging your staff management time. Instead of inspiring, coordinating and making announcements to one staff member at a time, you do it with the group.
As covered in ExecTech’s client guideline, “How to Conduct Great Staff Meetings,” you can actually hurt your practice if you give bad staff meetings.
Staff Meetings Are a Waste of Time When . . .
- You give lectures.
- Employees are not allowed to participate.
- People are criticized in front of the group.
- You allow arguments, gripes or disagreements.
- Someone runs the meeting who has little or no authority.
- You have no agenda for the meeting and lose control of the time.
Staff Meetings Are Productive and Enjoyable When . . .
- You are prepared and you follow an agenda.
- Everyone learns the news and current plans.
- You inspire and motivate staff to do better work.
- You encourage all staff members to participate.
- Your staff learns something new.
- You organize and coordinate the week.
