Our Rocket Company team is meeting all-day today, so I thought I would update you on a system that has been in development for more than a year. It’s just beginning to work well, and we’re starting to see results.
- We do a weekly team meeting that lasts one hour. The purpose of this meeting is vision and communication. We always start with a story from one of the churches we serve and we always end with a look at upcoming events.
- Once a month, we spend the entire day together. We focus on reviewing the numbers and quarterly priorities in the morning, then we discuss one or two “big rocks.”
- Once a quarter, we go away for one night. We look at the previous quarter (numbers and objectives) and then set three new quarterly objectives. These are big, all-team things, and we let those drive our activity during the next quarter.
- Once a year, we go away for two nights and talk about our annual priorities. We discuss and debate, then walk away with five big goals for the upcoming year.
The meeting system is really working for us, and while it’s not perfect, consistency makes it work.
I’m curious about your meeting structure. What do you do on a consistent basis? What’s working for you?
