So, how’s your Daily Huddle meeting going? Over time, it’s easy for this habit to begin feeling a little stale, and you might even start wondering if anyone would miss it if you killed it. They would! And they probably don’t even realize it (so don’t bother polling the team to ask). Instead, be the leader and huddle on! Sometimes the benefits of Daily Huddles are so subtle they go uncelebrated, but the truth is, the habit of huddling daily with your team might be the most valuable 10 minutes of your day.
The next time you feel like it’s an inconvenient interruption or someone tells you they’re too busy to huddle, keep these benefits of the morning huddle in mind.
6 Benefits of the Daily Huddle Meeting
The Daily Huddle is designed to increase speed and alignment for the whole company. It’s a 10-minute investment that yields a huge ROP (Return on Payroll). And if anyone tells you they’re too busy to huddle, you know you need to huddle more than ever. Keep the meeting short – these daily meetings should never last more than 15 minutes, as the team leader you need to keep it short and sweet. Trust me, the faster things are moving and changing in your company, the more valuable the benefits of team huddles for your organization. So be strong and huddle on.
