Webinar: Meetings: Less Pain, More Gain

July 22, 2009 - 8:00am

This is a two part webinar which meets from 12 - 1pm on July 22 and July 24

Meetings are an essential part of your day-to-day operations as well as an expression of your organization's culture. Not only are bad meetings a waste of time and money, they can send messages to your people that undercut performance, undermine loyalty, and lower morale. Bad meetings are a real problem.
In two highly interactive hours this course will review:

  • Why a written agenda is the single most important predictor of a successful meeting.
  • How effective meeting leaders bring everyone into a discussion, direct its flow, and guide groups to consensus.
  • Four different kinds of decision-making processes, and how to choose the right one for your meetings.
  • How to manage those inevitable conflicts and move polarized parties to consensus.
  • How to improve meetings where you are not the leader.

Who will benefit:
Anyone in your organization who leads meetings or participates in them on a regular basis.

The H word:
Between classes, students will be asked to do a little light homework: you’ll be assigned to create an agenda for an upcoming meeting applying new techniques covered during the first hour.
