Meeting Management - The Art of Making Meetings Work

Cutting Wood

Meetings come in all shapes and sizes, from the convention to a quick huddle in an office hallway. This one-day workshop will be concerned with small working meetings; with groups that have a job to do requiring the energy, commitment, and talents of those who participate.
 Members of such a group want to get some kind of result out of their time together: solving problems, brainstorming, or simply sharing information. At its best, such a group knows what it is about, and knows and utilizes the strengths of individual members.


Understand the value of meetings as a management tool
Recognize the critical planning step that makes meeting time more effective
Identify process tools that can help create an open and safe forum for discussion
Develop and practice techniques for handling counterproductive behaviours
