According to Michael Doyle and David Strauss in their book, How to Make Meetings Work, approximately 15,000,000 meetings are held each day in the United States and of those, 1/3 of them were deemed unnecessary by the people attending them. Have you attended some of those meetings yourself? What is your responsibility for ensuring those meetings are not a waste of time? How can you help – even before the meeting begins – to guide the meeting to a productive outcome? This interactive and strategic event shares a formula for success, regardless if you called the meeting or were beckoned to attend.
Participants of this event will leave with:
- Recognition of the specific behaviors that result in an ineffective meeting
- Deeper understanding of the various “roles” necessary for an effective meeting including leader, member, scribe, timekeeper and the responsibilities each needs to perform before, during, and after the meeting
- Ideas for creating the appropriate documents to maximize meeting effectiveness
- Strategy for using meetings to brainstorm and solve problems effectively
- A three-step process for planning for, executing, and following up on meetings to ensure meeting productivity
