Your Team Meeting Agenda
An agenda? You need an agenda
just to host a team meeting? You bet and here's why.
If you host a team meeting
without an agenda, you can end up getting lost fast. The meeting has no
real direction, topics are glossed over or forgotten altogether, and this
can lead to your team members thinking you are also disorganized without
any real direction.
That said, you don't have to
stick to it. If someone in your downline has an issue she wants addressed,
you certainly don't want to be a stickler and say "well, this isn't
on the agenda, it will have to wait until next time." That can also
equal disaster for your meeting!
So if you have an agenda, what
kind of things should be on it? Here is a list of potential things you
could discuss at your meetings - as well as the ever crucial time to recognize
any team members for achievements or goals reached.
- Introduce new team members
- New products - demos/information
- Competitive analysis - any
new competing products or companies hot on the scene?
- Any sales / bonuses / promos
- Selling / recruiting information
(useful handouts or tips for sales or recruiting - our printable worksheets
work well for this!)
- Recognizing team members
- Open discussion time (for
team members to ask question or address concerns.
By following these ideas for
an agenda, you can help keep your meeting on track, be less likely to
forget to mention anything important, and most of all, give a polished
and professional image to your team members!
