The meeting matrix

Do you feel like your meetings are a waste of time? Like you’re the only one talking and coming up with ideas. Like you’re the only one who cares about what’s going on. Like everyone would rather be somewhere else. Like even though you all sit there and talk, you still don’t get any closer to making any decisions. Then your meetings have probably lost their spark.

Losing your meeting rhythm happens all the time in business, but it’s important you get them back on track so you can reap the rewards that come with good meetings. The say "involvement drives engagement” getting meetings right means they become a useful tool for getting your team onboard with the goals of the business, while also removing a lot of the pressure on you as the owner to come up with all the ideas and solutions.

In this episode you’ll learn about the importance of good meetings in your team, and how they can actually save time rather than waste it, through the concept of proactive communication. You’ll also learn how meetings will reduce the amount of stress on you as the owner. When you get this right it’s like a huddle at the start of a sports game, you get everyone on the same page, so everyone is working toward the same common goal.


  • How to host better meetings that are effective and efficient
  • A reduction in the amount of stress and pressure you feel as the owner
  • How proactive communication can save you hours every week
