Column by VerticalResponse CEO/Founder Janine Popick, Inc.com "Basement to Boardroom" March 14, 2012
The last thing we need are more meetings, but having a company-wide gathering will allow you to make sure that everyone is marching toward the same goals.
I admit it, all-hands meetings are a tough one, especially if you've got a larger small business. At my company, VerticalResponse
, we were once split between two floors in a building and didn't have the luxury of space to get everyone together. Once we had a webinar because it got cost prohibitive to get everyone into a local hotel meeting room. Not to mention, I'm not a fan of huge meetings. (My team will tell you that!) I want to talk to everyone about the future of the company and get them as jazzed as I am about it, but I also know it takes a ton of people away from their jobs, and some might look at it as a PITA (pain in the a**).
