👋 Hello everyone,
Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:
📚 Book Summary:
This week's book is "The Surprising Science of Meetings" by Steven G. Rogelberg.
You should read this book if you are leading team meetings. This book is your "best practice" with backed-up research—showing you how to run more effective meetings that add value for everyone participating.
One of my favorite take away from the book is this:
"A leader with a servant-and-giver mindset recognizes his or her unique responsibility to make the meeting a good use of time. The meeting is not about the leader personally feeling the meeting had value; rather, it is about deriving value more broadly."
✅ Actionable advice:
A real eye-opener was when I realized it cost $4000 a month in salary and time for my team's weekly meeting. My job is to create value for everyone on the team for that kind of money.
