A J.O.B.S. perspective on meetings….
Meetings are necessary but the frequency of our meetings must be tempered.
Meetings provide a sense of importance and BELONGING (this is one of the reasons why people desire to meet so much).
Meetings transpire to address priority issues, however priorities issues are consistent to the personality or personalities of those delivering the information.
We must ask ourselves…
Does the issues that are deemed, “PRIORITY” of priority to the whole or the part (the individual)?
Inconsistency in the distribution of information results in a vision that is DIVIDED… An individual cannot afford to separate herself/himself from the whole.
It costs the individual and the organization…
This is called DIVISION…
What’s important to the individual may not be as important to the organization as a WHOLE.
Too many details.
Those individuals who submit information according to their own individual preference and agenda focusing on THEIR PART forgetting about the WHOLE.
Question to ponder:
What is the solution and how do we implement the solution?
Once again 80/20 principle is in full effect!
We must rapidly discern the root of an issue in order for the solution to be revealed. If we never get to the root of the issue then we will be placing band-aids on areas that are still infected. We don’t need any quick fixes. A wise master builder invests her/his time, “CASH”, effort and energy on the foundation. The house is built from the ground up.
Status Quo – The existing state of an individual or condition before war.
Let’s paradigm Shift…
Status Quo has endowed us with the ability to meet unnecessarily at times because we have fallen victim to a culture of routine mediocrity. As pioneers we must challenge the status quo to save time by being strategic in our application of different methods and form of suggestion.
Remember: Never dishonor those who have been called to oversee us in our respective workplaces.
Humility is key…
Last, but surely not least…
We must not be top-heavy (head knowledge) in the over accumulation of information that cannot readily be applied.
Eat the meat and spit out the bones…
Many of priority items can be caught by the spirit, we do not need interpret everything. This is why many people suffer from headaches and have lack of focus in the workplace. We must utilize our head knowledge to interpret information that should be interpreted by the Spirit.
But… You must first make room to receive.
