But according to the Tesla CEO, being on top of the food-chain and also being one step ahead of your competitors also comes with hard work and discipline.
So to cut the long story short, here is a run down on how Elon Musk describes a good meeting to be;
- No large meetings.
According to Musk, he does not see the point in organizing large meetings unless you’re very sure that it gonna yield value to the whole audience.
He said a typical Tesla meeting only involved five to six people. Other people who specializes in this field have also agreed with him, saying that If You invite everyone to a meeting and they have nothing to contribute during the meeting, then they’ll just sit there and think about other important things they could be doing with their time.
- If you ain’t adding value to a meeting, leave the meeting.
Like the first rule said, these meetings are not meant for everyone. If you realize that you ain’t contributing nothing to a meeting, it is advisable by Elon Musk to leave the meeting.
He said in Tesla, it not wrong for someone to walkout of a meeting if they ain’t adding any value to the meeting. Rather it wrong to make someone stay in a meeting where he/she adds no value.
- Avoid frequent meetings.
What the point in organizing a meeting frequently? According to the CEO, meetings are meant basically to discuss important issues. And once that issue is resolved, the meeting should stay recurring.
So there you have it, the three ways to manage and establish some discipline in the work place.
