3 Things You Should Be Doing
to Make Your Meetings Better

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Most meetings bosses conduct really should have been emails. They focus on disseminating information rather than solving real problems.
  • Leaders often leave their meetings vulnerable to being hijacked by others with hidden agendas.
  • The more you become a Builder, the more you take the tools of Buildership™ and make them your own.
  • Builders do 3 things that make their meetings not only meaningful and productive, but powerful tools to help them get better and better at their work. They use a “meeting rhythm” to ensure that they are having the right meetings at the right time, they use a specific agenda for each type of meeting to ensure that the right work gets done at each meeting, and they build in accountability into every meeting to ensure that they stay focused on doing the right work the right way and that they get better and better at pursuing their school vision, mission, and core values.

If you hate meetings, you're not alone. Most of us don't love the meeting that should have been an email. Nor do we enjoy seeing a meeting get hijacked by someone with a hidden agenda or those discussions that go round and round and end up nowhere. The truth is, most meetings are pointless at best and excruciating at their worst. That's why on today's episode, we're taking a look at how Builders conduct meetings.

You'll discover the big mistake most leaders make that leave their meetings vulnerable to hijacking, how to avoid those discussions that go nowhere, and 3 very specific and practical things you can do to make your meetings more productive (and dare we say, enjoyable too?). So check out today's episode where you'll learn how to conduct your next meeting #LikeABuilder.
