As leaders we must understand both the Maker’s Schedule and the Manager’s schedule. A small interruption has the potential to completely derail progress of a development team, impacting clients and your business.
Most leaders have never been trained to run a meeting or to understand the impact of what seems to be a small interruption. Yet, leaders are asked to run meetings every day. In the previous episode on the debate of the Manager’s Schedule vs the Maker’s Schedule Jim Milbery of ParkerGale and Alan Williamson of MacLaurin Group have friendly banter with Kelley Powell. They strongly suggest meetings are not the problem, rather it’s the leadership and how a meeting is run. Who are we kidding? They are quite blunt about it all.
Cameron Herold, author of ‘Meetings Suck’, has written a book on the subject and joins the debate to teach leaders how to use focused, time effective meetings to grow your business. Cameron goes in depth about the importance of training your leaders and employees how to run a meeting, the types of meetings you should have, who should attend, and when to have them. Cameron has written a wonderful immediately actionable handbook for leaders to help turn something that most loath into one of the most valuable elements to a business.
Hear Cameron, Jim, Alan, and Kelley as their friendly banter continues on a topic every employee should be better trained and informed on for both introverts and extroverts alike. When done right, effective meetings make us all and our companies better.
