Ww1 Week 3 The Agenda Essay

Decent Essays
KEY 3: The Agenda
For each meeting, you need to decide who the most critical people are who need to be there.
Without an agenda, you can’t possibly know who should be at the meeting. Consequently, an effective meeting starts with the agenda. Before the meeting decide: what you want to cover, what order you will present each agenda item, and how many minutes you will spend on each one.
Get good at letting people know they don’t always have to attend every meeting. You don’t need your lab technician to be there if you will be discussing the new printers and direct mail pieces with your treatment coordinators and marketing team. It’s OK if some people keep working on their projects and skip a meeting if they are not going to contribute to the outcome.
Every person who comes to the meeting should be participating in every agenda item. If not, they can leave

Your role as the leader is to grow people so that their voices are heard and they can contribute their great ideas. It’s not to get your ideas heard. You give them the vision; let them figure out the “how.”
KEY 7: Critical Roles
Of all the employees you have, how many of them have received at least a 30 minutes of training on meetings or have read at least one book on meetings. Cameron Herold asks, “Think about little league baseball for a moment. What parent would ever send their kid off to play little league baseball without at least showing them how to hold the bat, how to put a glove on and how to toss a ball at least a small distance away.”
But we all let our employees go to battle every day without ever giving them training on communication and running or attending productive meetings that get results.
At every meeting, a single person should be appointed as the moderator, and they will be tasked with three critical roles: moderator, timekeeper, and Parking Lot.
The Moderator

    I started out playing baseball due to the fact that Overton Little League did not have a softball association. I enjoyed playing baseball with all the guys, who later became some of my best friends, but I really wanted to play softball. Eventually, Overton found the need to make a softball team and I became one of its first members. I played every year in hopes that one day I would grow up to be a varsity pitcher. As high school rolled around, my hopes became reality.…

    Not one of the guys seemed to be mad at me after all, I had just lost one of our biggest games of the season and they had to be irritated that we didn't make it to the semifinals. I didn't fully understand why no one was mad at me until we broke up into teams for our wiffle-ball game. I had lost sight of what the big picture was, it wasn't all about winning the championship or pulling off an unbelievable come-from behind win that sent us to the semifinals. We played in this summer league because we were a group of guys who loved to play the game of baseball. I didn't need a trophy or a ring to show off to have fun playing the game of baseball that has been with me from a very young age.…

    My mom came over to the dugout afterwards and told me she got a picture of the swing. I was ecstatic. My dad was proud too, I 'm sure. I wish I could have seen his face when that left fielder watched the ball travel over the fence. Maybe then he would have seen me as a baseball player as opposed to a follow-up to his first born, a son he could cheer for.…

    It wasn’t required to go to Performance Course but everyone knew if you wanted a chance to make the baseball team you had to attend this program. Not before long, the first day of Performance Course (P.C. for short) arrived bright and early at 6am before school started. The first day was very intimidating to me.

    Each team will receive one flag to throw on the field to challenge a play if the manager of the team thinks the call was wrong. If the call is over turned the team challenging will the flag back.

    Falling a Little Short Most young children grow up recieving participation medals with pride while listening while their parents tell them that they tried their best. I guess that you could say that I was not raised like most children. Ever since I was able to walk my father had me running bases and playing catch. When I was 7, since there were not any softball teams available for me to join, my father even signed me up to play for a boys baseball team. It might have been weird that I was a young girl who played third base, but it was even weirder that I excelled.…

    Before, I explain to you about the play I made in that game, let me explain to you about how the T-Ball-esque league is played. When 4 year olds are playing baseball, the players do not pitch, the coaches of the respective teams pitch to their own batters. The league I played in did this for 2 reasons. One, because the league did not want to put stress on the little kid’s arms. Throwing from that far of a distance for a little kid, without any momentum towards home plate, puts a great deal of stress on pitcher’s elbows.…
