Why the meetings must go on

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Whatever you do, don’t cancel a meeting because of a tightened budget. Employees and customers need to see the leadership team standing in front of them, sending a “we’re in this together” message. When the economy rebounds, employees will remember.

Three ways to stage a successful corporate meeting:

1. Be focused.
Show your knowledge of the situation and reveal plans for coping. Casting yourself as a prepared leader is critical.

2. Tell stories.
Veteran managers have been through tough times before. Share tales of their resilience.

3. Hear from the field.
Hold panel discussions and breakout sessions, so attendees can share best practices and do detailed planning together.
