An essential element of football is the huddle. During the budding years of football, the huddle was viewed as a waste of time because it slowed down the game. Despite early complaints, the practice continues today. Before each play, team members quickly gather together to strategize and to inspire fellow team members to achieve success.
Likewise, daily huddles work in business. The huddle doesn’t have to take a lot of time. In approximately 15 minutes or less, they allow the manager to plan for changes in workflow, set expectations, prevent crises and promote accountability among team members.
