TD Monthly Meeting…and Russia

Masterminders, good morning you crazy awesome people. I’m getting ready to leave for Russia later today to go fire-up a fitness conference of about 10,000 people. I don’t know much about the conference, I don’t speak Russian, and I just got my visa yesterday after a several week processes of trying to get the visa.

It will be interesting, to say the least, but I’m getting more and more fired-up by the minute.

I woke up this morning grateful. Not so much to go to Russia as that has never been a “bucket list” trip for me, although I’m sure it will be interesting. Grateful for the opportunity just to do what we dang do.
It’s not always easy. We often have challenges (leadership, culture, revenue, members/clients, burnout/energy, etc.) that seem daunting.

One of the things I want to share this am is our recent “trainer meeting” at FQ10. I find that the more I CONNECT with them and the entire team, the better the ship works. Without constantly feeding THEM vision, education, leadership, and energy, I feel like I’m pushing a boulder up a hill.

This particular meeting was held my Assistant GM, Jeff Bristol. Jeff is a key cog in the wheel for me as he connects so well with the team also and is in the trenches daily also. In this particular meeting, we are talking about some very important GRANULAR items on performance. As a matter of fact, I have attached the “performance checklist” we used in the meeting for you to see HOW we are evaluating performance for our trainers. It’s the little things that are big things and I want to make sure they are all on the same page.

I know I sometimes get questions about “team meetings” and how often we do them. For us, it’s…
leadership meetings–weekly
“Departmental meetings”–monthly (Trainers/coaches; front desk)

If we need to meet more than that, we do. But that’s what we aim for all 42 employees. I find that allows us to communicate enough without over-doing it either.

Here are a few things about the meeting and then you can watch if you would like and/or review the notes…

It is important to connect regularly with “the dogs who hunt with you.” They NEED it, they WANT it and GREAT LEADERS want to CONNECT with their people on a regular basis.

I hope you enjoy our recent meeting Masterminders. You are part of my team so you get to enjoy the meeting from the homeland.
