Meeting Effectiveness

Meetings are extremely costly, not only in terms of the direct financial investment, but also in terms of participants’ emotional investment and engagement. When run properly, the effective meetings create the opportunity to add significant value to the business.

Leaders who run great meetings improve innovation, collaboration, decision making, commitment, accountability, and overall better business performance.

Unfortunately, as most of us have experienced, many meetings are simply a waste of people’s time and lead to disengagement, frustration, lack of follow through, and are overall unproductive.

This program focuses intensively on meeting effectiveness skill development and application through reinforced practice – using real life meeting simulation exercises. Participants leave the program with the facilitation skills, the meeting effectiveness tools and processes, and the confidence to apply their learning on the job.
