A Seat at the Table

A Seat at the Table

Engaged employees want a “seat at the table.” They care about the company and want to participate in making it better. It’s the leader’s responsibility to set that table. EOS® offers a proven method for how.

For the senior leadership team, that means 90 minutes every week on the same day, at the same time, starts on time, ends on time, and has a fixed agenda. 

For other teams, the agenda and frequency of the meetings may or may not be the same. However, they are always regularly scheduled and driven by the unique needs of that team. 

Regardless of format, the key guidelines are simple: 

  • 1/3 of the time is spent sharing information that’s important to attendees, not just the boss)
  • 2/3 of the time is spent solving important (to them) problems with an effective, disciplined methodology (IDS™).
  • There’s a strong facilitator who may or may not be the boss

No useless updates, no boring status reports, no unfocused venting. Just solid information sharing and problem solving. What’s not to like about meetings?
