Running business meetings. It sounds like a basic skill, yet so many companies and teams are struggling to do it effectively.
The inspiring Elon Musk has recently shared his tips:
1️⃣ No large meetings.
A rule of thumb - no more than 4 - 6 people. Before sending an invite, always think how each person will add value.
2️⃣ Leave if you feel you do not add value.
It is important to build an acceptance of this behavior in your company/ team culture.
3️⃣ No frequent meetings.
Often we forget to cancel reoccurring meetings which were originally created to solve an urgent problem.
While I find these rules very useful, I question 3️⃣. I think it’s especially important for every leader to have standard reoccurring 1:1 meetings with each team member. There are many employees who need that special time to express their concerns.
What are your tips to run effective meetings?
There are basically two ways to find a solution to any problem:
1. Ponder, deliberate, discuss and evaluate
2. Take a break
My best ideas came to me either when running or on vacation.
This time I'm coming back from Finland with a few rearranged priorities and new solutions.
And I gave it zero thought. The ideas just pop up!
It's weird how NOT working may sometimes be the best work you can do.
Minimal logo doesn’t mean only minimal style in visual part, but also in function. In these times to create such a big brand like Apple, Nike or Mastercard it’s near the edge of impossible. But by creating consistency in visual identity between the logo and its graphic language can make the logo symbol more recognisable without a wordmark. Funny fact, is that the first Shell logo was created in 1909 and it was used only as a shell symbol without a wordmark.
One of the main things about creating live and dynamic brand is consistency and connection between logo and graphic language. Following this process many things can appear: from recognasibility to avoiding big finances for advertising materials. Curious about more benefits? For example - one of my works, that was done with Imagine studio - visual identity for the largest in the Baltic region eyeglass lenses manufacturers.
