Corporate strategy vs local strategy

Town hall format meeting is an amazing opportunity to convey a message. It is an equally amazing opportunity to waste time with a lot of people.

I have been to many town halls. I have seen some of them providing value and senior management listening to the feedback, but also I have seen many that are a waste. Why is that?

Usually, the town halls are created and assembled when the strategy is set. There is no time to maneuver. The only thing people with power can do is to smiley and promise to follow up

If you want to change the culture, then start from this mindset. If you want to gather input and have agile organization, then make sure you didn’t create the full strategy and plan time to ask for a feedback.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations
