Make Any Meeting Effective

If you are serious about getting results every time you hold a meeting, this is a 'must attend' course.

Most people consider meetings the bane of their existence - pulling them away from meaningful work. Meetings can be a total waste if the meeting is called just to have a meeting, meaning there is no clear purpose other than we always meet on Monday morning. If meetings are not properly planned and executed, many hours of employee time is wasted, causing resentment and often making employees work late. Instead of having attendees dread your meetings, learn how to plan and execute a meeting with purpose and energy, focused on needs, objectives, and solutions. You'll learn how to manage the logistics of the meeting, how to write an agenda and invite the appropriate workers to attend. Plus you'll get tips for starting the meeting, assigning roles and handling sticky situations when personalities come to the meeting pushing their personal agendas or trying to dominate the conversation.
