Tip of the week: Holding a staff meeting

During a staff meeting, have an icebreaker for the employees. Have them sit with other departments, sit in alphabetical order or count off by numbers and sit with their given numbers. Although this can make a few uncomfortable in the beginning, it gives them a few minutes to network with other employees and to build relationships.

Change the icebreaker each meeting.

Allow time for the boss to speak and brief the employees on "hot" issues or discuss how the organization is fulfilling the mission. Always allow time for questions. Employees enjoy having a few minutes with the boss.
