What are we really trying to accomplish?  This is at the heart of an effective meeting.  Meetings can be a valuable use of time and effort from participating members; however, most meetings become tangential, redundant, inconclusive, and ineffective.

We take a look at the keys necessary for preparing, participating, facilitating, and providing follow-up for an effective meeting.  This includes reviewing the people that should be included versus informed.  Participants will practice agenda setting and work through the details that should appear on an agenda. 

The course also reviews the importance of coming prepared and participating during meetings.  To ensure these tips can be applied on the job, we provide various communication templates to provide updates and build business arguments during meetings.  This enables participants to practice and plan for various collaborative decision-making techniques to help create consensus during meetings.
