4 keys to great meetings

Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events. She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Set the toneMake sure employees understand upfront what the meeting will entail. That way, they can be properly prepared going in. Meetings that are called without providing specifics on what will be discussed can be unproductive. Also, if the meeting is meant to be encouraging and forward thinking, make sure that is communicated and a positive tone is set. Otherwise, your team may experience anxiety that could have been avoided.Keep it conciseIt is valuable and necessary to touch base with your employees, but have a game plan for the meeting and stick to it. Getting off track and going on tangents will only take time away from important work that still needs to get accomplished. Having talking points is an excellent way to stay on target. If a time is set for the meeting to take place, stay within those perimeters to keep your team upbeat and motivated.Stress the goodNot all meetings are fun and without critiques. But, that doesn’t mean they have to be negative. A strong leader spells out improvements that are expected, but does not dwell too long on mistakes. Instead, with any criticism, include a positive. For example, if a team member fell down in one area, address it, but talk more about ways to make things better. That way employees are not discouraged, but helped up and inspired.End with complimentsYou’ve touched on all your main points and the meeting is about over, but before you wrap up, leave your team with a few words of gratitude. Nothing motivates and positively influences an employee more than feeling appreciated.last_img read more

Brisbane home values on track for strongest monthly rise in 5 yrs

first_imgHouses and apartment buildings are seen against the Brisbane CBD skyline. Image: AAP/Darren England.BRISBANE home values are on track to record their strongest monthly rise in five years, as the housing market recovery gathers steam, new figures reveal.Preliminary data released exclusively to The Courier-Mail by property analyst CoreLogic for the first 28 days of October reveal dwelling values in the Queensland capital have increased 0.8 per cent.That would be the best monthly result since 2014 and the fourth straight month of gains. RELATED: Worst over for Brisbane housing A subtle rise in home values is expected in Adelaide, while Perth values have continued to trend lower over the month to date.AMP Capital chief economist Shane Oliver said the boost from the federal election result, RBA rate cuts and the relaxation of the seven per cent mortgage rate serviceability test were driving a bounce in home buyer demand. The Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to cut interest rates again before the end of the year. Image: AAP/Dan Himbrechts.Mr Oliver said that was evident in the continuing rebound in auction clearance rates.Economists are still pencilling in another interest rate cut for November or December.The final home value index results for October will be released on Friday, November 1. Preliminary CoreLogic data reveals Brisbane home values are on track for a fourth straight month of gains. Photographer: Liam Kidston.It follows a 0.1 per cent increase in values in September, a 0.2 per cent rise in August and a 0.2 per cent in July.CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless said the recovery in Brisbane home values was being driven by strong population growth, housing affordability and a substantial slowdown in construction activity.“We can confidently say the (Brisbane) market is in a phase where values are rising,” Mr Lawless said.But Mr Lawless said he would like to see “a few months of consistently strong performance”.“Let’s keep in mind it’s only one month (of strong gains),” he said.“But it’s a hint the market’s starting to respond to all this stimulus.” CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless.Across the five major capital cities, the index is up 1.2 per cent over the first 28 days of this month — the fourth consecutive month of rises since house prices bottomed in June.Mr Lawless said the improved housing market conditions were becoming more geographically diverse, although Sydney and Melbourne continued to lead the growth trend.Sydney home values are on track to post 1.5 per cent growth for October, while Melbourne is shaping up to record a rise in values of 2.1 per cent.“Low interest rates and better access to credit are having a positive effect on growth conditions,” Mr Lawless said.
