How To Grow People and A Business
One simple technique was recently written about by Cameron Herold. Cameron was the COO of 1-800-Got-Junk during the formative years when it went from three to one hundred million in sales. This tells me when Cameron speaks, I should listen.
Cameron says before a meeting ends, the meeting leader should have each participant verbalize to the group what s/he is committed to doing and make sure there is total agreement. This greatly improves the chance of the work being done. This also acts as a self correcting tool because the group will put pressure on the non-producers.
Try this in a meeting that you run and see the quality of the meeting and the quality of your team improve.
