Why You Need Weekly One-On-One Meetings With Every Employee, with Drew McLellan.

By |January 18th, 2016|

Episode 15:

Drew McLellan is the Top Dog at Agency Management Institute. For the past 21 years, he has also owned and operated his own agency. Drew’s unique vantage point as being both an active agency owner and working with 250+ small- to mid-size agencies throughout the year, give him a unique perspective on running an agency today.

AMI works with agency owners by:

  • Leading agency owner peer groups
  • Offering workshops for owners and their leadership teams
  • Offering AE bootcamps
  • Conducting individual agency owner coaching
  • Doing on-site consulting
  • Offering online courses in agency new business and account service

Because he works with those 250+ agencies every year — he has the unique opportunity to see the patterns and the habits (both good and bad) that happen over and over again. He has also written two books and been featured in The New York Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, and Fortune Small Business. The Wall Street Journal called his blog “One of 10 blogs every entrepreneur should read.”

 

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • How you are preventing your employees from becoming the employees you want them to be
  • Why every employee needs weekly one-on-one meetings with their direct supervisor
  • How to get your employees to run these meetings
  • The form that needs to be filled out before one of these meetings takes place
  • How these meetings can help you celebrate the wins you might not know about if you didn’t have these meetings
