|Special topic for EOS Integrators|
In recent meetings with a few clients—in one case doing a lunch and learn with some key managers around the L10 Meeting™—I have realized that a key learning has been missed. The concept of cascading L10 meetings has transformed into a belief that everyone has to be in an L10. In some cases, even every meeting must be an L10.
Here are the basics, and I go back to the Organizational Check-up that we review at every annual:
Question 13: Everyone is engaged in regular weekly meetings.
The concept is that we use great meetings to keep everyone connected to the changing priorities of the business and provide an opportunity for messages and issues to be quickly cascaded up and down your accountability chart.
Some meetings will not fit the L10 format and that is okay, just review the points made in your Off-Line Meeting Track tool and make sure that it is still designed to be a great meeting for all attending.
If I can ever be a resource for your team please let me know – I love the interaction and it helps me hear what is working and not working in helping the leadership team achieve EOS Mastery.
Lead well . . . . ~ Scott
In most organizations, your role has the most direct reports, the most key measures on the Scorecard, and – along with the sales team – the most pressure on it when the organization is not meeting financial targets. As a result, mastering the EOS tools and cascading them is really important for you and your team.
Have you cascaded the EOS meeting rhythm to your team?
- Weekly L10
- Quarterly Planning
- Annual Planning
If the answer is no and you have been doing EOS for over 18 months, my next question is: Why not?
As your company grows, your role will grow – and probably faster than any other area because you are at the heart of the product/service your company delivers. Your ability to delegate and elevate with your leadership team will allow your team to grow along with you. If you would rather stay in a more hands-on role, that is also great too if that is your unique ability. It takes courage to have that conversation. I have seen it happen twice, and it made everyone happier and more successful.
As we head into annual season for many of you, expect me to ask this question. If you aren’t doing it yet, it is time to start. As always, how can I help?
(PS: If you want to connect with leaders already doing this well, let me know and I will be glad to connect you.)
