Stop Meeting; Start Producing!

Work is difficult enough. Everyone has a job to do and on top of that we often stack meetings just to have them. It makes the staff unified, right?

Wrong.  It makes your people frustrated and bored. Both the good ones and the bad ones.

I have close friends in sales and one of their greatest frustrations is being forced to sit in “motivational” meetings when they would rather be out selling and making money (for their boss – who is forcing them to sit in the meeting).

My friends are anxious to get to doing what they do best. They want to do what they are paid to do: Make the business successful.  They resent being treated like the poor slouches who won’t respond to any motivational campaigns.

Are they out making calls? Are they supervising their teams? Are they thinking up new ideas?

No.

They are sitting in another useless meeting…hearing how everyone else is doing…or being told they need to be motivated more…by supervisors who have no clue what they are actually doing on the job.

Have fewer meetings and spend your time motivating people who will respond… like yourself!
