Senior Leadership Teams: A Simple Framework to Maximize Your Meetings

Are your Senior Leadership Team meetings focused on the right things? They should always focus on three key things, and one of them in much greater proportion than the others. In this short video, Mark Morgan and I discuss how to use a practical framework to maximize the effectiveness of your SLT meetings, as well as a simple test to honestly evaluate how you're doing in this area.

Are your Senior Leadership Team meetings focused on the right things? If you’re going to be effective, every meeting should focus on three key things:

  1. What’s Happened Recently

  2. What’s Happening Now

  3. Where We Are Going in the Future

The first two are execution discussions: evaluating last weekend’s service, reviewing key metrics, determining what the staff needs for the upcoming series, etc.

The last one is a strategic discussion: vision, growth engines, future staff needs, what we need to stop/start, etc.

The Where Are We Going in the Future area is the one Senior Leadership Teams neglect the most because they’re often living for Sunday. In reality, the SLT should spend the vast majority of it’s time on #3. You can’t lead your teams appropriately if you don’t give yourself space to focus on the strategic.

Mark Morgan from The Unstuck Group and I recently talked about this with one of our coaching networks. Watch here to learn how to use this framework practically to maximize the effectiveness of your SLT, as well as a simple test to honestly evaluate how you’re really doing in this area:
