As business owners we all want to increase productivity, efficiency and profits. As a busy business owner it’s tempting to overlook the need to communicate regularly with your staff and the benefit of staff meetings. A properly planned and executed meeting will increase productivity, communication and efficiency.
What we don’t often think about is not having your staff on the same page, that is knowing what is happening in the company at any particular time. This can have a negative effect on your prospects’ or clients’ perception of you and your company. For example, one of our clients was unaware of a promotional piece and was clueless when his client asked him about it. Admittedly, he was extremely embarrassed.
Remember to take the time to communicate and have staff meetings regularly. With the right agenda the meetings can be short; it’s a great way to keep your team informed and in sync.
