Your biggest question should be: Why have a meeting? There needs to be a compelling reason.
We will review various types of meetings and define the purpose of each as well as explore alternatives to holding meetings. Depending on your real purpose, a meeting may not be the best way to accomplish the goal. Once you determine that a meeting is the best solution there are several questions that need to be answered during the planning process. It is critical to have a good plan. How do you determine who should attend the meeting? How can you make the meeting memorable and impactful? What should be done to follow up and ensure everyone pulls their weight and fulfills their commitments?
How to build an agenda will be discussed and illustrated. The key ingredients and fundamentals of all meetings will be explained. People are all unique and need various types of interaction. We will share exactly how to deal with each major type of person in the meeting so that the good of the group is accomplished and everyone feels they have made a contribution and are valuable.
Why should you Attend
Good meetings are productive, positive and absolutely necessary.
Bad or unnecessary meetings waste money, waste time and are destructive to morale. It is critical for you to know the difference between the two. Most companies have far too many meetings that are neither efficient nor effective. This webinar will give you all the guidance and methodology you need to always maximize the impact and results you create with meetings. The next time you conduct a meeting your co-workers will be asking you to share the secrets you know on how to conduct a meeting. You will learn those secrets and how to conduct effective meetings during this webinar. Your job will be to use the information and share it with others.
The best evidence of the quality of a leader is to watch their behavior while leading others. This is especially true during meetings.
