Meetings That Work
This 3-hour course includes 90 minutes of live online instruction and 90 minutes of self-directed learning.
How many meetings are on your calendar? How many do you wish were there? When your workday is filled with meetings, there’s often little time to get actual work done. Companies are paying employees to sit and listen rather than make progress on their projects. When leaders can make meetings more efficient, they leave more time for important tasks to happen.
Projects involving many people will inevitably require meetings to stay on track. But these meetings can start piling up if workers are resisting ideas, if time is wasted, and if no decisions are made. Effective meetings can reduce the need for gathering and motivate others to get things done.
