|Points to consider
||The best leaders have a brief, but effective meeting with their team each morning.
Keep the meetings short: hammer on a few key points.
Keep the energy up – be positive: praise the crew for the progress they’re making, call out people who did good work yesterday.
Find ways to get other people involved: ask your lead hands to say a few words; if someone new has joined the team, ask them to introduce themselves; call on individual members of the crew and ask them for their reaction to the subject you’re discussing.
Praise and encourage people who raise their hands and ask questions. If no one says anything, chances are no one is listening!
If there are announcements to be read, ask someone else to do the reading (make sure this person is comfortable doing this). You chime in and repeat the message in your own words.
It’s always a good idea to start and end the meeting talking about safety.
