Why You Should Manage All Your Employees Like Millennials

Written by Jim Coyle on December 14, 2017

I recently had a conversation with a friend who was struggling with managing a millennial. She asked me for thoughts on how to best manage her younger staff. As we talked, I realized that millennials take a bad rap for being needy for things that we as leaders and managers should be doing anyway.

I had an epiphany when my friend asked, “What have you seen or heard is the best way to motivate millennials?” Here’s what I told her.

Meeting Ratings: Improve Productivity and Team Health with One Simple Discipline

Written by Mike Paton on December 11, 2017

In our first session with an EOS® client, we help them implement an efficient, productive Meeting Pulse™ and weekly Level 10 Meeting™ that quickly improve the quality of the company’s meetings. One of the things we insist they do is rate each meeting – out loud– as it concludes.
