This Running Effective Meetings online training course explores strategies that will help you plan and conduct effective meetings and get observable results.
Most managers spend from 25%-80% of their time in meetings, many of which they are leading. And, according to some estimates, approximately 50% of this time is unproductive. An effective meeting begins with the preparation that is done ahead of time. Without a plan, your meetings won't be any better than they ever were. Conducting the meeting requires that you be alert and attentive to what is happening, and keep in mind the goal of promoting the combined wisdom and talent of the group. Without results, the time and energy that was expended on the meeting will be essentially wasted. This course will provide you techniques that will encourage participation and lead to a productive meeting.
