Tired of ineffective, pointless meetings? Are you frustrated when nothing gets accomplished? Do you feel overwhelmed by meeting facilitation? Is time limited but there's much to be done?
Learn how to run an effective meeting with less stress! In this meta-meeting of the imaginary Citizens’ Corps for Effective Learning and Leadership, we'll talk about key tasks before, during, and after the meeting, visual aids and materials, and top soft skills to pay attention to. You'll even employ some of your new skills before the class is over.
Even though the size, purpose, and setting of meetings vary greatly, the toolkit remains the same. Come arm yourself for meeting action!
Note: Agenda will be circulated in advance of the class
