Smart Meeting Management

Learning Path: Management Pro

Duration: 1 Day(s).

Course Overview

Meetings make up a sizable amount of time during the work week. Whether it’s a large formal meeting, a water cooler chat, a conference session, or a board room discussion, meetings are vital management tools. Too many meetings can get off track due to poor planning and agenda setting. They can also be a waste of time if you hold them just because you set aside the time.

This workshop focuses on small working meetings where the group wants to reach an outcome during their time together. The outcome could be to reach a decision, solve a problem, share information, brainstorm ideas, or one of many other goals. At its best, the group knows what it is about and the job it has to do.
This one-day experience will help you utilize the strengths, energy, talents, and commitment of the meeting participants and conduct smart meetings.
