    Pros

    Needing a major overhaul meetings and gossiping.

    There are plenty of early warning signs for business failure - team conflict, poor quality products, poor customer service, system failures in administration or finance - all of which feature heavily in negative gossip and backstabbing before the eventual disaster strikes.

    Gossip & Backstabbing is Easy and meetings that are wasteful after 30 mins.
    Bad meetings are one of those things in life that we could really have less of. You know the ones where nobody is prepared or there’s no strong purpose that is driving the meeting? At the end, you leave the meeting feeling like it was a waste of time.
    Unhealthy use of socializing in the office setting is about pecking order behavior, cliques and favoritism

    Cons

    Being the leader doesn’t mean being bossy.

    Becoming the leader doesn’t mean telling everyone in meetings what to do, sometimes that has to be done. However, to become a great leader you have to lead by example. So why are so many bosses bossy? Typically it’s because their authoritative fashion has failed and they feel they have to be more prepared, even aggressive, to get what they want by having employees stay over 9 hours. What they don’t recognize is that when people don’t fully grasp, they’ll do something their own way and generate their own deadlines and priorities. However, this can makes a boss feel even more out of management, and this usually will not help the structure of the work environment that is why employees make errors in planning and forecasting.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare

    The most important step when initiating a meeting is to establish the purpose. Who needs to be there? What is there role in the meeting? What do you need to bring to the meeting? Plan an effective meeting so prepare and have the employee's making the major errors accountable.

    Communicate

    You need to let everybody know well in advance that this meeting is happening. Give them enough time to prepare everything they need to bring. The worst thing you can do is to call a last-minute meeting. Give them a heads up about the agenda so they are all in agreement about what will be discussed or what problem a team member caused. It’s also a good idea to check that tasks that need to be completed before the meeting have been done.

    There may be things that aren’t on the agenda that other people want to discuss. Try to schedule these topics for later on or at another meeting date.

    Wrap It Up

    Meetings start to get unproductive when they run for too long so once you have gone through your topics, wrap it up with the next steps. Who needs to do what and when does it need to be done by? Be specific about what you want to happen after the meeting.

     6 Things That Courageous Leaders Never Fail To Do:

    Invite opposing points of view
    Listen more than they talk
    Ask questions that teach people to think and catalyze solutions
    Keep their ego and need to be right in check
    Tell their teams explicitly that they have confidence in them
    Take responsibility for their decisions

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Great, flexible schedule. Family-focused. Awesome coworkers. Work is challenging and provides growth opportunities, both within current position and with ability to advance.

    Lack of advancement. Yes, culture is evolving, which brings some uncertainty, but isn't that a part of life...being prepared for the unknown?
