Your huddle up and running in 7 days
A well organized regular huddle is much more than sharing information on the work that needs to be done or asking for help. Instead, it’s the perfect platform to inspire others. If it is well done, it increases the level of motivation within your team, results in collaboration and in more interaction among team members.
The importance of the huddle
“One of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen in business is managers not establishing a routine daily team meeting. The benefits are basic but the risks of not holding routine meetings can be catastrophic.” – George Rathbun, CEO at INCENT & Lean Leader
“By starting the day without a huddle ensures a workforce that is uninformed and de-motivated. Communication is one of the keys to success.” – Wally Adamchik, President FireStarter Speaking and Consulting
“Successful huddles require practice and experience. In the best ones, every team member actively contributes and most team members prepare in advance.” – James Allen, co-leader of the global strategy practice at Bain & Company
But how can you avoid a huddle becomes a boring mandatory meeting? How can you get the best out of it? With 8 years of experience and more than 1500 huddles led and guided I’ve seen and led many examples that went well, but also that could have been done much better. Knowing the theory is one thing, but the most important is how to put this into practice.
