Assigned Seats Can Grow Your Team

Staff Meetings are an important part of the operation of your Center and it’s important that you take advantage of the full meeting. One great way to start off your meeting is by doing assigned seating. Not from a controlling aspect but more of setting up situations that can benefit each employee.

Typically when Teachers come into the meeting place they sit with those they know. Why not change things up – even if you are a small Center. Consider seating them by classroom, pairing them up with someone they don’t work with so they get to know someone new, seating a new employee next to a veteran employee that can mentor them, or putting 1 leader at each table and maybe incorporating a discussion into your staff meeting where the person can lead the conversation.

Setting things up can provide leadership opportunities or build relationships with your team. Comment below with your seating plan and how it benefits your team.
