Share With Your Friends

Meetings are supposed to provide time to listen, learn, plan, address issues, and make decisions.  But all too often they can be stressful and unproductive. Common problems include: no clear purpose, or clear outcome, rambling or poor quality participation, late arrivals and missing participants. 

Conduct Meetings with a Purpose: Techniques and Tools

Failing to plan for a meeting is planning to fail. Some of the direct effects of ineffective meetings include:

  • meetings are longer, less efficient and generate fewer results
  • more meetings are needed to accomplish objectives
  • With so much time spent in ineffective meetings, employees have less time to get their own work done
  • ineffective meetings create frustration at all staff levels
  • inefficient meetings cost organizations billions of dollars each year in otherwise productive employee work time

By attending this half-day workshop on Conduct Meetings with a Purpose, you will be better able to prepare and run meetings that are purposeful, efficient, and that meet your specific department, project, or organizational objectives.

You will learn:

  • How to determine if a meeting is really necessary.
  • To create agenda that ensure progress
  • Practical tools for running focused, results-oriented meetings.
  • Techniques for maximizing participation from meeting attendees.
  • Tips for getting follow-through on meeting action items.
