When you’re working from home or when a client wants to have a call with you to discuss things with your team, you’d want to be in a space that’s quiet. A space where only you, your team and your client share. It’s a place where your minds meet and where agreements are made. It’s safe to mention that this space needs to be as serene and as sacred as possible.

In any case, you’ll want to have your call go as smoothly as possible. With that, I’ve created a checklist of things you will want to remember before having that meeting. Check it out:

This allows you to not only monitor each person’s progress but also make suggestions regarding tasks. It also gives your call a pattern to follow so the propensity of getting lost in the call goes down to nil.

After you reach the bottom-line and you think it’s absolutely okay to horse around (because quite frankly, we need it), then don’t go as far as 3 minutes. End the call and work.

That about wraps it up for this little blog post about managing your team calls. Let me know how you handle your calls.
