Effective Meetings

Course Description
Research shows that the average individual in our society today will sit through 9,000 hours of meetings in their lifetime! That is over 365 days spent in meetings – not to mention the thousands of dollars spent on meetings. Meetings can be run efficiently and managed in a way that produces high impact. These techniques will allow participants to produce successful results from any meeting, whether as a participant or leader.

Who Should Attend
This course is appropriate for employees who plan or facilitate any meeting type.

Learning Objectives
Through training, participants will develop a process-oriented approach to meeting leadership – one that increases the leader’s ability to satisfy both the needs of the group and the objectives for the meeting by identifying task and people concerns.
