Weekly Leadership Team Meeting

How to Run a Leadership Team Meeting

Held at the same time and day each week, teams use this meeting to drive accountability and resolve issues impeding progress. This is an action-oriented working meeting rather than a reporting and information sharing meeting. The agenda leaves no time for reading reports or explaining delays. Instead, the time is spent working through high-priority issues to find solutions.

Use this meeting agenda template as a starting place when designing your weekly leadership team meeting and adapt the agenda to fit your team.
