“I think there needs to be a meeting to set an agenda for more meetings about meetings.”
~ Jonah Goldberg
My PA, Trish Lyons, turned up at the farm yesterday afternoon so we could have a staff meeting.
Staff meetings are important. We feel we approached it the right way.
The first thing we did was have a cup of tea.
Then we went for a walk and fed the cows.
The sun was getting low in the sky by then so we made a snacks platter, got the log fire going and got a roast dinner ready for the oven.
We then ate the snacks platter and the roast dinner.
After which it was time for bed.
Today Trish will have a sleep-in while I go down to Byron Bay to get some acupuncture and Lyme treatment. Then we’ll regroup, make more cups of tea and sit on the verandah with our notebooks and flipcharts and a Zoom hotline to Love, our other team member who can’t join us in person (We miss you, Miss Love!).
One of the most important things I have learned is that if you wouldn’t invite a person to your home, or share a meal at your table with them, then they’re not the right person for your business.
I’m really blessed to have a great work team who are also my good friends.
Today we’ll finalise our gorgeous new 2020 Planner before it goes to the printer, our courses and program for the rest of this year and our new Academy of Learning for 2020. I’ll update you as soon as we’re done! I imagine this will be a multi-cup-of-tea and snacks kind of day.
Much love to you, Nicole xoxo
