Who should attend

Managers who run, or attend meetings, should attend this program, to understand how to improve motivation, productivity, participation, and leadership skills through conducting well run, time-bound meetings.

About the course

Meetings are seen to be an important part of every business. Yet they are one of the biggest time wasters. Poorly planned, badly handled meetings cost hours of time that could be used more effectively. In the Gulf, one of the main complaints of delegates on our Time Management programs is - 'poorly planned', 'too long', 'badly run' meetings. Late attendance, no agenda, no prioritization of items, poor chairmanship, etc., are all common complaints. This course provides all the essential skills for running effective meetings.

Meetings eat up a large percentage of an average employee's workday, yet often little is done to manage this important expenditure of time and resources.

Good meeting skills are essential for any collaborative effort; they enable employees to make decisions efficiently and respond more quickly to fast-changing demands. Since 1969, Interaction Associates has conducted research and collected data from hundreds of consulting engagements to develop a methodology for successful meetings.

The result is Mastering Meetings™, a highly experiential workshop in which participants address the most common barriers to meeting effectiveness and learn skills and strategies to run meetings that are shorter, more focused, and yield tangible outcomes.
