Unleash Your Meeting Potential™: A Comprehensive Guide to Leading Effective Meetings
Meetings are one of the most common business activities across nearly every industry and organization. Billions of dollars are wasted every year on countless, ineffective meetings. Frustrations commonly expressed include a lack of clear purpose, no developed agendas, no one knows why they were invited, not reaching any decisions, discussions running off-track, and a lack of follow up.
Meeting management principles and skills are never taught in school, and most organizations fail to offer this as part of their orientation and training programs. And yet, leading meetings is a standard expectation. So where do they expect you to learn this?
Imagine if you were trained with a simple, straightforward methodology around leading effective meetings. You would consistently achieve the results you want, people would feel valued for their input, greater collaboration would take place, and all your projects and initiatives would move forward successfully.
