Ladder Meetings and 3 Reasons Why You Need Them!

  1. You can improve motivation within your team! Your employee will feel like you know who they are and not just an employee at the bottom of the rank. They may feel valued that you listened to them. Having that time will show you are approachable and you care about your team.
  2. You may receive some great ideas! The best ideas come from those who do. In reality, your team members are the ones carrying our the tasks. They may be the ones who interact with other departments, colleagues or customer or members of the public. Their ideas may help the business or your department. Not only will this help you, but it will show the employee their ideas are valuable to the business.
  3. Your future leader may be in front of you! There are times when you meet people who you know they have so much potential. The employees who have untapped potential, or you can see that they will be a great leader one day. Your direct report may not see that potential or may be afraid to showcase them. By speaking or spending time with your team members outside your direct reports, you can identify these employees. You can encourage them to assist you on projects or give them additional responsibilities. The benefits are that you can retain the employee in your business, have a succession plan and improve your department.
