Good meetings focus activities, coordinate people and resources, and help to develop cohesion and shared vision.
But all too often meetings can seem like a substitute for purposeful and productive action. They take up time with unstructured discussions, generating frustration and wasting attendees’ time. And as a result of the lack of clear outcomes, yet another meeting needs to be scheduled.
This session has been designed to help you make your meetings more productive and focused. It provides practical guidance on preparing and managing meetings as well as handling different personalities to ensure full participation and buy-in.
By the end of this course you will learn to:
- Realise the true cost of ineffective meetings
- Appreciate that facilitating effective meetings is a three stage process
- Prepare a focused, goal oriented agenda
- Structure and manage your meetings
- Be able to deal with difficult people in your meetings
- Use approaches to encourage interaction and participation in your meetings
- Appreciate the importance of the post-meeting follow-up
