Because the all-hands meeting brings everybody in the company together, it’s one of your most valuable meetings, but also one of your most costly. That’s why you should take extra effort to make sure you’re all-hands meeting is put together for maximum impact for everyone attending.
Start every all-hands agenda with a section that covers some aspect of the company vision. As a leader, you can never talk about the vision and purpose of your company enough. Then, having said that stage, move on to data, bringing in key metrics that illustrate where you’re at and where you are going.
To further emphasize the trajectory of your company, this is usually a good opportunity to provide updates from teams and departments. Make sure to include customer stories here when you can, as well as challenges that you have faced in what you have learned.
