Why are so many morning meetings just a mere formality?
According to statistics, few enterprises are able to insist on the habit of morning meeting, and some of them just stay in a one-way communication and simply arrange work. Some morning meetings even directly turned into a sign-in meetings. However, Our company has different colleagues taking turns to host the morning meeting every week. We are full of passion and happiness all the time. These failed morning meetings are generally inseparable from the following questions:
1. The decision-making level of the company neither formulated the management system of the morning meeting, nor made unified requirements for the form and content of the morning meeting.
2. The organizer thinks that the early meeting doesn't matter, and does not realize the important role of the morning meeting and the importance of their management.
3. Although some enterprises have been holding the meeting for several years, they never check, monitor and summarize the early meeting, let alone the supporting incentive and punishment measures, which will become a mere formality;
4. Some executives, although aware of the need for early meetings, are frustrated that they don't have a practical approach and just go with the flow.
5. Some early meetings are just a one-way meeting, where the manager talks and the employees lose interest;
