Ensure Your Results with Moderated Monthly Review Meetings
Duration: 3-4 hours once a month
When you stop to think about it, business leaders really have two jobs: 1) fulfilling their role as a member of a business management team, and 2) managing and motivating the people who report to them. All too often one job suffers at the expense of the other. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to excel at both.
Let Results Coaching help. Once you implement the entire Results By Design process, enlist one of our coaches to conduct monthly reviews with you and your team. In just 3-4 hours per month, you will be informed of the team’s progress as well as any barriers that need to be addressed, AND we’ll keep your team informed, on track, and motivated and committed to producing desired results.
We’ll begin with a review of the past month, employing the principles of the Cycle of Productivity to assess what went right, identify shortfalls, and determine lessons learned in the process.
Next we check in on the culture of the team and the workplace by assessing how well team members acted on the team guidelines and continue by reviewing the team’s new paradigm and gauging its effectiveness.
Monthly Reviews include scoring the goals achieved during the last month as well as setting new goals for the next month using PRO, our online tracking system. Month by month, team members learn to be accountable for results as they report their progress to the team. PRO maintains a record of the team’s progress as well as each individual team member’s contribution to corporate objectives as defined in the team plan.
The Benefits are Huge. Results By Design Monthly Reviews provide busy managers with significant benefits:
- Ensures Continuity and Attention: It’s far too easy to cancel a meeting when “something more important” arises. Even if you have every intention of rescheduling it, there always seems to be a reason to put it off until meetings like this simply don’t happen anymore. Enlisting an outside consultant as moderator brings the discipline required to ensure that monthly meetings consistently take place and the full agenda is honored.
- Saves time: Yes, committing to a 3-4 hour meeting each month can be challenging, however, most Team Leaders report that they spend far less time each month in one-on-one meetings. In addition, one of the features of PRO, the online tracking system, is reliable reporting of individual performance relevant to team goals. Imagine getting a printout of individual performance when it comes time for annual reviews!
- Reliable Tracking: How often have you delegated something to someone on your team and then failed to follow up? Monthly Reviews ensure that you always know where team members stand in relationship to their goals.
- Breaks Down Silos: With shared goals and outcomes, members of the team come to understand how their area of responsibility impacts other areas of the organization as well as the overall success of the organization itself.
If it’s time to put some structure around your annual planning process and discipline into its implementation, call on Results Coaching. Whether you decide to implement Results By Design modules individually or as a full package, you will find the resulting motivation and commitment of your team to have a positive impact on the future of your organization.
