This can make or break your organization

Communications is the most imperative piece of keeping your organization strong. Attached agenda sample.


Setting a schedule of communications around your organization's common goals will be imperative as you grow. Monthly meetings with those that oversee multiple teams or groups in your organization is important, but it is also important what is being communicated. Meetings that do not have a rhythm of encouragement, celebration, and leadership take-aways for growth will be less attended and bring frustration. With so much pressing for everyone's attention, we have found that creating an agenda for our meetings keeps us on focus of what matters most to the leaders in our organization. We have a monthly coaches meeting to make sure that the coaches are fueled and ready to lead the multiple teams that they oversee. This allows them to get firsthand information about what matters most, so that they can share it with the leaders of the individual teams in the weeks after the meeting.

A pass down of wins is critical to keep high energy in your volunteer teams. We've found that the attached agenda serves as a good outline for each monthly meeting, so that we are intentional in what matters most for information pass down.

See the attached agenda to give you a headstart on encouraging your most valuable assets (the volunteers) in your monthly meetings.
