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.

“Rating your meetings” seems like such a simple concept that many fail to grasp its importance. Some even decide– early in the EOS journey– to make It optional or skip it altogether. If you’re one of those people – please read on. Because properly rating your meetings and using the feedback to make them better (and your team healthier) is a game changer.

Mastering the art of compartmentalizing will help you free up energy and time for yourself, your team, and your company – while maximizing your efficiency and productivity. You'll execute better, become more efficient, and FOCUS your team's energy.

Two workers in the Operations Department of a company were working one Friday evening to push out a late delivery. One saw a problem about to happen and said to the other, “Look at that! We can’t ship this out. This order is not correct.”

“You’re right,” said the other, “But neither one of us can fix it. Nobody can fix it until Monday. The boss told us to get this shipment out tonight, and we’ll get yelled at if we don’t. Remember what he did the last time something like this happened?”

Written by EOS Worldwide on September 25, 2017

Earlier this month we released the latest book in our Traction Library: What the Heck is EOS?  We’re truly excited about this book because it answers many of the key questions that we’ve heard over the years from employees in companies implementing EOS. 

Questions like:

  • What is an operating system?
  • What is EOS and why is my company using it?
  • What are the EOS foundational tools and how do they impact me?
  • What’s in it for me?

After reading this book, employees will not only have a better understanding of EOS but they will be more engaged, taking an active role in helping achieve your company’s vision. We also recommend that you and your leadership team read these four blog posts to help you explain key concepts to your team as you implement EOS throughout your organization.

They have very specific expectations for information and for their work environments. TheVision/Traction Organizer™ and the Accountability Chart provide the vision, big picture, and culture that millennials need to understand and to be engaged.
