In EOS Traction, the Weekly L10 Meeting is one of the best ways to get your Executive Teams aligned. While I use Scaling Up for all my coaching, I find the timed structure and scoring system of the L10 effective in keeping the meetings focused. Below is my recommendation on a default rubric until your team creates its standard. 

Method 1: Deduction Based

Start the meeting at a ten and deduct points as you go. Each deduction is per event. Therefore, two late members would merit a one-point deduction.

Severity

0.25 Point Deduction

0.5 Point Deduction

1 Point Deduction

Rock “Off-Track” 2 Weeks in a Row



X

To-Do Not Done 3 Weeks in a Row



X

Unexcused No-Show



X

Going Over Time, In Any Stage of the Meeting


X

Meandering Meeting / Lack of Focus

Method 2: The 5 Questions

Give the team 0 to 2 points per question for how well the following were addressed. 

  1. Was everyone one-time and prepared in advance?
  2. Was the team forthcoming and honest, or did you sense members “holding back”?
  3. Did we achieve clear next steps?
  4. Was progress made on to-dos and Rocks?
  5. Were metrics achieved or a plan made to work towards achievement?
About the Author

I use my 20+ years of entrepreneurial experience and training to coach businesses on scaling up rapidly using Verne Harnish's Scaling Up framework. By doing so, my clients are more efficient and profitable, giving them the ability to make bigger impacts in the world.

I deeply believe entrepreneurs are the best equipped to be the vehicle for meaningful change, and in the decade ahead, we'll see a substantial shift in how business is done. We'll move to a model where company purpose, impact, curiosity, and team health will be differentiators in overall business success. As Simon Sinek has pointed out, the finite games are the legacy of the past; we're moving to an infinite game.
