Amazon’s “two-pizza” rule is fantastic. You should be following this and it’s a simple one.
“While, sadly, the rule does not mandate that pizza be present at meetings, it does mean that Bezos won’t call a meeting, or even go to a meeting, if two pizzas wouldn’t feed the entire group.”
“According to a Harvard Business Review study that examined the Outlook calendars of multiple workers at a large company, consecutive weekly meetings can consume as many as 300,000 hours a year of employees’ time.”
Here is one, great way for managers and leaders to boost their motivation during this challenging time. I have them write gratitude notes to their team about one specific, unique thing that person does and share what the impact is. Either start with their team from the bottom up, go across and pick peers, or even go outside and pick clients/partners.
By the time they’re done they should be out of the funk (for a few days at least then you can come up with a different exercise).
