A Daily Meeting That Actually Works
Want to stop confusion and reduce interruptions?
Use the DAILY HUDDLE
This short, simple meeting is often the first step in giving owners enough time to really work ON their business.
It's designed to keep everyone on the same page
Think how nice it will be when your employees no longer have to continually interrupt you for additional work because they already know what to do.
Since they know they will have a meeting every day, they will hold their questions that can wait. Finally, you'll feel confident that everyone is on the same page.
Its ONLY PURPOSE is...
To align and focus everyone’s effort on what must be accomplished, operationally, that day only.
Too often meetings start late, the conversation isn’t focused, problems aren’t actually solved and the meeting runs too long. The daily huddle isn’t any of those things.
A Daily Huddle Isn't...
A Place to talk about long term strategies
Those topics are best handled at a different time and typically with specific individuals
The time to Look at Monthly Goals
The Daily Huddle focuses on Today's tasks Only!
The Place to address Issues with Individual Team Members
These should be done one-on-one at a separate time.
A Social Gathering
Obviously Not, This is a work meeting after all!
Why Do A Daily Huddle
Keep everyone focused in the same direction
Ensure timely answers to pressing questions
Lets the team communicate directly
Everyone knows what everyone else is working on
