What is a team meeting?
In the simplest terms, a team meeting is a chance for you to bring your team together. That could be to discuss a project, review goals or just have a catch-up and some bonding.
These meetings are more likely to take place regularly - potentially even daily. They also will probably be more casual as everyone is going to know each other.
The main reason for a team to come together is to review projects and ensure everything is going to plan, talk through blockers and air any concerns. How often you need to have a team meeting depends mostly on the type of project you’ve got at hand, the company size and your current goals. For instance, a tech startup with limited employees will find it easier to meet often compared to a business with 50 people per department.
In your team meetings, regardless of size, be sure to create a positive atmosphere – that’s how you’ll get the most out of your team and encourage them to talk openly in meetings.
