I manage a remote sales team and started with one weekly team meeting for 1 hour. The team asked for that to be split so now we do two 30-min meetings a week. The two has helped build some camaraderie so I think it’s been a good move. I don’t think I could handle 3 and make them all meaningful. <br><br>I previously had a 30 min daily standup that was a constant waste of time. What are you working on? How many calls are you committing to today? What’s your commit for this month/quarter? No surprise I left.
Edit: “I previously was on a team that had a 30 min daily standup”. It wasn’t my own daily.
I think it’s built the team culture faster. The team has visibly connected on a personal level more since the change because we see each other more. This has led to them talking to each other more and sharing tribal knowledge. It’s a young team that benefits from that.
If I had a team of enterprise reps, may not be as necessary. I think for my team it was definitely valuable, tangibly and intangibly.
