What's in this template?

Team meetings have a bad reputation. Employees can feel like these meetings are a time waster and keep you from doing your “real” work. In fact, executives consider 67% of meetings as failures. Depending on the executives’ salary, that could be a hefty sum of wasted money each year. Sixty-five percent of senior managers said meetings keep them from completing work. 

Despite the bad reputation, most managers still frequently hold team meetings. No one teaches any of us how to run an effective meeting, so we keep passing down this archaic and ineffective way of running meetings. 

When done well, team meetings can increase productivity by keeping the teams aligned and helping each person prioritize the right tasks for the week. Team meetings allow you to share news, exchange ideas, gather feedback, make decisions, and prioritize the right work. 

The biggest problem is that employees dread team meetings when they lack structure and organization. So use this template to give your meeting some structure and organization, and voila! You’re on your way to better meetings. We recommend team meetings are held weekly or bi-monthly in order to keep all teams aligned.
