We’re back and ready to bust more workplace myths! Last time, we talked about the drawbacks of working overtime. Today, we’re talking about the benefits of team meetings.
Myth #2. Team meetings waste time that could be used for other priority items.
Do not underestimate the positive impact that team meetings can have. As a leader, a large majority of your time needs to be focused on supporting your team. If you become disengaged, your team can feel neglected. This often leads to a crisis of trust towards leadership. Without a leader, a team lacks direction, and a clear direction is crucial for maintaining a productive and successful workplace.
Use one-on-one meetings with your team members to establish trust by staying up to date on individual growth, project progress, and any obstacles they face. By addressing and overcoming barriers to success sooner, you will see an increase in motivation and confidence within your team. Plus, these meetings keep projects and deadlines on your team’s mind, ensuring they make progress on their tasks.
