Meetings That Drive Results

LEARN SKILLS TO LEAD EFFECTIVE MEETINGS, ESTABLISH GOOD RELATIONSHIPS AT WORK AND DELIVER RESULTS

“We surveyed 182 senior managers in a range of industries: 65% said meetings keep them from completing their own work. 71% said meetings are unproductive and inefficient. 64% said meetings come at the expense of deep thinking. 62% said meetings miss opportunities to bring the team closer together.”

Our Effective Meetings interactive session addresses these concerns and breaks apart the premise that meetings is the panacea for all organizational concerns. We will look at topics such as: who should really be invited, roles in a meeting, how to reach decisions and not just great dialogue, how much time to allocate for topics, injecting discipline into your meetings, and decision making styles.
