FINDING THE LUSTER IN LACKLUSTER MEETINGS
Every Thursday, Rymax Marketing Services Inc. strives to help educate current and potential business partners about the inner workings of our industry. Whether the program you’re offering is for customer loyalty, employee recognition, player rewards or corporate gifting, we’re tapping into the expertise of some of our staff to provide you with valuable insider information that can help you build a successful and impactful program. And today, it’s all about meetings.
Ask any meeting organizer, and they will tell you — the basic goal of a sales meeting is to inspire confidence and excitement, boost morale, company loyalty and retention, while also showing appreciation for hard work and a job well done. Ultimately, sales meetings — when executed right — are a vital part of growing your business and engaging employees. However, instead of being met with a little enthusiasm and eye contact, far too often you receive blank stares, glazed over eyes and a team that is completely disengaged and unmotivated.
This is a sure sign that you are in the rut of dull predictability, and it’s time to take action!
Paul Gordon, Senior Vice President of Sales for Rymax recently shared his executive insight on team morale in the September edition of SMM Magazine. Bottom line, it’s not too much to ask for a little team spirit, it’s how you go about asking for it that makes the difference.
Based on key points presented in the article, we’ve created a short checklist to help you in planning your next meeting.
Here’s what you need to ask yourself:
– Am I creating an experience that is actually inspiring?
– Are my meetings designed with engagement and motivation top of mind?
– Am I showing appreciation and boosting morale in new and creative ways?
– Do my attendees value these meeting rewards?
If you answered “no” to any or all of these questions, then you should consider a new approach to boosting team morale!
