Following up on my previous post about our weekly meeting rhythm, I wanted to make sure and capture what we do for our monthly and quarterly meetings. I’m a big fan of Patrick Lencioni’s book Death by Meeting, so we’ve implemented a schedule that is a hybrid of Lencioni’s recommendation combined with our own adaptations. Here are my monthly and quarterly meetings:
– Financials review
– All hands meeting (company-wide update)
– Leadership strategic meeting (on occasion)
– Leadership off-site
Having a consistent rhythm, with different, special purpose meetings, has proved to be very effective for us and I recommend it to other entrepreneurs.
