Firstly, if you are not currently holding staff meetings, you need to. It is important for you as a business owner to be frequently communicating with your staff. Your employees will see things that you do not see and vice versa. Additionally, staff meetings give you an opportunity to build your relationship as a team.
I recently started implementing a new strategy in my staff meetings that I feel has improved their overall quality and effectiveness. During every staff meeting, we go around the room and give everyone a chance to bring up whatever they think we need to talk about. However, it has been an issue in the past where my staff has not preemptively thought of what they would like to say at the meeting, and as a result, they don’t have anything to bring up. However, I recently began asking them to come prepared with at least one thing they think we can improve on, and one thing that they think we are doing well at. I have found that since doing this, the quality of my staff meetings has improved overall.
Staff meetings help you improve your business and improve unity among the staff and yourself. I encourage you to try having every person on your staff come with a couple things prepared to discuss, and I suspect it will improve the efficiency and quality of your meetings significantly.
