#Entrepreneur #Business @Calliste on The 10 Minute Meeting

New York, N.Y. – We all know the popular adage, “time is money” and for majority of people that is true. Especially true for consultants, accountants, lawyers and other service professionals time is a valuable commodity.

“We conducted meetings every 25 minutes, two meetings an hour. Then we were introduced to the 20 minute meeting, three meetings an hour”, says Callistecomm founder and senior consultant Jerry Calliste Jr.

“So the thought crossed our minds. How about the 10 minute meeting, six meetings an hour? We can conduct 1 or 2 hours worth of meetings with contractors or partners and manage 6 to 12 projects”, says Calliste Jr.

Talk about efficiency. For Callistecomm that will leave approximately 37 to 38 hours of a 40 hour work week to manage and execute plans and achieve business goals. “As managing director I have an opportunity to cover more projects and further motivate my team leaders and save time”, says Calliste Jr.

In 2009 Mr. Calliste Jr. allowed Callistecomm to adopt the 40 hour, 4 day work week. Mr. Calliste Jr. through one of his joint ventures learned from a Scandinavian partner how Scandinavians balance work, family and personal time. Calliste Jr. recalls his European counterpart saying, “I am not going to work 60 to 80 hours and all weekend on our project like you Americans work. We believe Americans work to long.”

Calliste Jr. thought he had a point. Scandinavians are routinely voted efficient and having the best education systems when working an average of 35 hours a week and vacationing 2 months out of a year.

“Imagine if your business has 4 contractors applying the same practice to their meetings. Productivity should be through the roof”, says Calliste Jr.

Calliste Jr. and his team will not be the first company to explore the 10 minute meeting. It is a known fact that Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, while at Google held 10 minute meetings (Ref: Gallo, C. 2006. “How To Hold A Meeting Like Google”. Bloomberg Business. Web http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/stories/2006-09-26/how-to-run-a-meeting-like-google).

In 2014, Entrepreneur magazine published an article by Drake Baer (originally posted in Business Insider), titled, “11 Ways Top Execs Like Marissa Mayer and Jeff Bezos Run Meetings Effectively” (Web: http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/240287).

Throughout 2016, Calliste Jr. and his team @Callistecomm (TW) will measure the outcome of holding 10 minute meetings. Expect a follow up to this post later in the year.

Apple Store

According to Leila Abboud and Alistair Barr 2012, “Apple’s stock may be sliding as investors fret about growing competition, but store visits and interviews with smartphone and tablet shoppers in 10 cities around the world suggest consumers share little of that negativity.

With tablets and other mobile devices the gadgets of choice this holiday season, Reuters canvassed over 70 shoppers and store employees across Sydney, Seattle, Palo Alto, Shanghai, Bangalore, Singapore, Paris, London, Mexico City and Boston for insight into what does and doesn’t beckon.” Read more > http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/13/us-mobile-global-idUSBRE8BC00K20121213

12 Surprising Signs You Could Be An Entrepreneur – Entrepreneur

#consulting #calliste #entrepreneur #leadership

entrepreneur_images

According to Grant Cardone 2012, “Almost every article ever written about entrepreneurship suggests that it’s not for everyone. And yet the articles go on to list attributes that many successful people possess as the traits commonly associated with great entrepreneurs, such as a strong work ethic, persistence, persuasiveness and discipline.

For 25 years, I have studied entrepreneurs and discovered that what contributed to their incredible success was not what society typically considers assets. People like John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford and Oprah Winfrey didn’t achieve greatness by possessing the traits and following the narrow path recommended by management gurus.

So, don’t believe everything others say about you or how they label you. Maybe your supposed liabilities are really your assets. Here are 12 signs many people might consider a liability, but which can actually be indications that you are meant to be an entrepreneur…” Se: The list of 12 Surprising Signs> Click to Read More

Management Tip of the Day: Don’t Ignore Your Gen-Xers | HBR | Reuters

#genx #leaders #leadershipchat #management @callistecomm According to “”Generation X,” those born between 1965 and 1978, has been overshadowed by the demographic behemoths bracketing them – greying, retirement-delaying Baby Boomers and leapfrogging Millennials. But no company can afford to ignore them, says Harvard Business Review.

The Management Tip of the Day offers quick, practical management tips and ideas from Harvard Business Review and HBR.org (www.hbr.org). Any opinions expressed are not endorsed by Reuters.

“Generation X may be a smaller population than Baby Boomers or Millennials, but it wields great influence in today’s organizations. People in this generation are the all-important bench strength for aging leadership.

With Callistecomm.com and Simplestream.us two organizations underway I can focus on reinventing Bassmint Music Inc. and creating new various artists series productions through music publishing company Hashim Music http://www.hashimmusic.com (web site under redesign). Hashim Music is a music publishing member of ASCAP since 1985. The MP3 and ring tone, customized ecommerce shopping cart, we developed back in 2004 at Bassmintmusic.com will be redesigned and offered as a mobile app.
