Topic: Quarterly Conversations
Advice and Insight for Entrepreneurs and Leadership Teams
Do you know what it takes not to just thrive, but to dominate your industry? Yes, I know that answer depends a lot on the industry. But I also know that following EOS purely and consistently, year after year, is what creates strong, enduring cultures that can adapt to the change and drive long-term growth.
The quarterly conversation is simply a one-hour, one-on-one meeting with each of your direct reports every 90 days to discuss what’s working and what’s not.
After teaching it to our clients for more than 15 years, the feedback and results are undeniable. It’s high-impact, due to the limited time it requires (one hour per quarter, per direct report) and the outcomes it produces. The outcomes are issues getting solved, improved communication, faster growth, and a stronger and healthier bond between you and your direct report, just to name a few. The math is a no-brainer.
Are you having quarterly conversations with all of your direct reports? One of the most powerful things you can do is to stay on the same page with your people and help to make little course corrections along the way. Above and beyond your regular weekly meetings, day-to-day interactions and annual performance reviews, I recommend you follow this practice.
