Meetings, Bloody Meetings: Making Meetings More Productive

Meetings are an essential part of work, but if run poorly they result in wasted time and frustration. This course will provide you with the tools you need to organise and chair productive, efficient and effective meetings.

Meetings are essential to management, decision making and team building; but often they are not run well. Poorly run meetings waste time and leave people feeling frustrated and demotivated. This engaging course will provide you with the tools you need to organise and chair meetings that are productive, efficient and more motivating for the people involved. 

This course sets out the five key disciplines necessary to ensure meetings are organised, efficient and effective. The five disciplines are explored through the experiences of Tim, a manager who consistently fails to run effective meetings. Tim has a dream that he is before a judge, charged with failing organise and chair meetings effectively.  The judge demonstrates how the rules for running meetings parallel those of a court, and explains the chaos that would result if he ran his court in the same way that Tim runs his meetings.

Whether it is running a client meeting or a staff meeting, after completing this course you be able to effectively organise and chair meetings of any kind.

Completing this course will enable you to:

  • Recognise the characteristics of a good meeting in terms of the five key elements; 
  • Learn how to prepare for, structure and control effective meetings; 
  • Identify specific strengths and weaknesses of your own meetings; and
  • Devise an action plan to improve your ability to run effective meetings.
