Weekly Collective Intelligence

We’re running into a bit of confusion about what the hot seat is supposed to include every week. Can you give me a basic rundown of what that means for the person who is on the hot seat?

Sure. The rock-holder will be speaking for the first 5 minutes or so. This could include:

  • Here’s the plan for the quarter …
  • Here’s what we’ve done so far …
  • Here’s what we think we know …
  • Here are the open questions we’re facing …
  • Here’s what we need …
  • etc

The remaining time is for the team to ask questions and give feedback, such as:

  • What about X. Have you considered that?
  • I’d like to help with Y.
  • Please add Z to your open questions list. (Alternatively, let’s talk about Z for a few minutes now.)
  • I’m confused about detail A. Please explain / defend that decision.
  • etc

In general, this is the time to go deep. Some of the detail I interrupted at the offsite would fit perfectly here.


I free up entrepreneurs for greater impact. Day to day demands of your growing business will sap your energy and blunt your effectiveness. Together we can work to reduce demands by up to 80% while moving more quickly in the direction of your purpose.
