Team meetingMeetings. The word is enough to strike fear into the hearts of most employees. It evokes wasted time, wasted money, and, above all, wasted energy. They're slow, pointless, and most of them could be accomplished via email, right? 

Wrong. 

Meetings don't have to be a soul-sucking time waste. If you structure your meetings with an eye toward efficiency, they can not only be faster, but tremendously helpful in creating and maintaining momentum.

mikekotsisGuest blogger, EOS Implementer and Business Coach Mike Kotsis describes how to diagnose and address your entrepreneurial frustrations with a Business Operating System.

Imagine you’re on a road trip. Your kids have been whining and yelling in the backseat for about an hour. Out of desperation you put a DVD into your laptop, letting out a sigh of relief as you wait for the kids’ movie to load. Only this time nothing happens. No Sound. Blank Screen. The whining instantly resumes. Your laptop’s operating system has crashed. Without a working operating system, the DVD just spins in the drive. No picture. No sound. The DVD drive can’t communicate with the screen or speakers.

Are you a bottleneck?When your company grows to 10-15 people or more, frustration can begin to build - you have more people to get the work done, but you also have more people to talk to and coordinate on a daily basis. Suddenly you may wake up and realize that you are spending 75% of your time sitting in meetings, managing crises, or answering questions, and you’re not spending very much time doing what made you passionate about starting your business in the first place.

Chances are you spend most of the day feeling annoyed that your employees “don’t get it," while your team is equally annoyed with you because your brain is split in a million directions, you aren’t available to make decisions, and you haven’t given them enough information to function independently.

Congratulations! It’s time to really embrace your role as CEO and make some changes so you can take your growing business to the next level.
