Run decisive meetings

Research suggests that businesses waste millions of pounds every month by holding unnecessary or unproductive meetings. If you find yourself wasting time by sitting in on meetings which you don't need to attend, or which don't lead to focused action on business critical issues, then changes are needed. You and your business are going to benefit from rapid, noticeable differences in team productivity plus improved morale and effectiveness.

Your new strengths and abilities

  • Clarifying if and when a meeting is needed (instead of other action).
  • Producing a solution focused agenda that defines minimum outcome(s) required.
  • Designing structure, form and location of meeting.
  • Questioning and deciding who should attend and for how long.
  • Managing over/under participation or resistance.
  • Using different leadership and influencing styles to create interest and spontaneity.
  • Techniques to summarise, record accountability and review agreed action points.

Who would benefit?

Running effective meetings should be an absolute given competency for all levels of staff.
