Steve holds a daily meeting with his staff called 'the Daily Stand Up'. The meeting takes only 3 minutes (per person), and the resulting benefits are substantial.
Having refined and streamlined it to its most efficient functions, Steve shares how this can benefit upper businesses or organisations.
Cycle around each person and ask them a particular set of questions which will give you confidence that your team is on the right track. This can also be a great opportunity to bond with each other and discuss events company-wide.
Knowing your team will allow you to coordinate and facilitate interaction between the various personalities in your working group.
The questions are:
Firstly: What challenges did you have yesterday, and how did you overcome them?
Secondly: What is your plan for today's work?
Lastly: Do you have any concerns, or do you foresee any challenges that need to be addressed by anyone in the team?
'We typically have 5 or 6 people in our meeting depending on whose around for the departmental meeting that particular day. If you have a big organisation, you might also spread this out into several departmental meetings.'
'We've had these meetings run into 20 minutes, 40 minutes or an hour in the past. We've done everything wrong before figuring out how to do things right.'
'You can talk about a lot in a minute if you're very focused on what you want to say. People then get good at this, and they practice what they are going to say in their heads.'

ABOUT THE HOST
Steve used to be a slave to his business, but when he moved to Sweden in 2015, he was forced to change the way he worked. He switched to running his businesses remotely, and after totally nailing this concept, he decided to spend his time helping other small business owners do the same. Steve's been investing in property since 2002, has a degree in Computing, and worked as a doctor in the NHS before quitting to focus full-time on sharing his systems and outsourcing Methodology with the world. He now lives in Sweden and runs his UK-based businesses remotely with the help of his team of Filipino and UK-based Virtual Assistants.
