Is your Quality, Health & Safety or Environmental Compliance system working for you? How much time are you wasting trying to chase people to get things done, trying to remember to follow up on tasks, getting your Audits up to date, controlling documentation, dealing with customer complaints and capturing your Health & Safety Risks or incidents?
Let MANGO help you with a simpler way that makes the system not only work for you but, gets everyone involved in the system simply so you never have to remember again.
I absolutely love MANGO. The software is easy to use and has taken hours off my workload.

Meetings are a complete waste of time!.. well if that's how you feel then you're probably doing them wrong! I know sounds strange when you go to so many meetings to hear that but yep you're doing them wrong and what's more, as a leadership team, there are only 4 types of meeting you need to be having, that's right, only 4 meetings but like anything there are some rules around how it all works.
I'm a big fan of the Organisational Health work that Patrick Lencioni has been doing and one of his suggestions is to have only 4 types of meeting, but they may be a little different than you think so let's take a brief look and in later articles we'll dig into how and why they work.
So right about now your thinking that you have enough meetings and you don't want to spend even more time in meetings right? well just think about it for a moment, how many of those meetings are truly productive? By productive we mean that
While you are thinking about that think about the last question what about this as well, add up all the time you currently spend in meetings as a leadership team, all the time you spend rehashing things and getting nothing really decided, how many hours per year do you get, I bet it's a big number.
Ok so if you did the process as outlined above you would spend around 220hrs per year in meetings that actually drive your business forward, based on a working year of 2080hrs that's only a fraction over 10% of your time.. I bet you spend more than 10% of your time in really unproductive meetings don't you?
Sure you may have other meetings but I bet even if you add them into the mix (and did them right! - see points above!) you would still spend way way less and get more done using this method.
One last thought, and I hate to break it to you, as a Leader or Manager of the business guess where you main part of your job is carried out.. yep in meetings, deciding things so that your teams can execute them effectively, don't you think you owe it to your team to do it right & not create chaos in the organisation through miss communication, opposing views, no outcomes or wrong outcome meetings?
