Bill Clinton made his national debut with a speech at the 1988 Democratic National Convention. He went on for 90 minutes. By far his biggest applause line of the night was “And so, in conclusion. . .” If only he’d started there.
I recently received a report from an EOS® company leader who said their team has been feeling a bit "bummed" lately. They felt this way after perfectly good Level 10 meetings™️, even when a lot got done!
Their concern was that the Level 10's seemed to focus on "negative things," like problems, barriers, obstacles, ISSUES, thus leading to a feeling of general negativity.
I did some correspondence on this with my "Honey Badger" tribe of fellow EOS Implementers, and they, too, noted that this is not uncommon. I've done a bit of online research, and it turns out that it is quite normal for high-performing teams to experience this occasionally.
Do you have too much on your plate? Feeling overwhelmed and unfocused at work? Juggling too many priorities? If so, now’s the time to schedule a Clarity Break! If you’re not doing them, you’re at a disadvantage – possibly missing opportunities to reach your full potential.
Have you struggled to find 90 minutes for your leadership team to meet every week? Do you continue to shoplift time and hijack people throughout the week when there are issues in your business? If so, it’s time to give your Level 10 Meeting a tune up.
As an EOS Implementer™ I have the pleasure of working with many leadership teams of entrepreneurial companies. I get together with them in a room every quarter to make sure they are moving towards their Vision, realign them as a team and solve issues. And though every team and company is unique in their own way, all businesses struggle with the same issues, different but the same.
