Every day 83 million people attend 11.5 million meetings.
Meetings are an essential part of corporate life. Yet far too often, time is wasted in meetings that are unnecessary, poorly organized and unproductive. The cost of poor meetings is very high, and your job is to seriously consider how your managers can reduce this controllable cost.

Good meetings are a reflection of good managers, and it is possible to transform meetings into a productive, focused, and even an energizing activity.

What is the cost of ineffective meeting management and facilitation to you and your team/organization? What do you believe are the biggest contributors to failed meetings? Which of the 4 elements of meetings do you believe cause the biggest pains in your organization:

  1. Plan: Unclear about the purpose or poorly communicated objectives of the meeting
  2. Lead: Conversations get off track, unhealthy conflict occurs, and meetings run over time
  3. Close: No actions are committed to or decisions are left hanging
  4. Follow-up: Little or poor accountability on follow-up actions

If any of these 4 elements is impacting your organization, you may want to contact us to help. Our Effective Meeting Management and Facilitation Workshop is packed with practical advice, customizable templates and checklists, that will help you stay focused and productive from start to finish and leave each meeting ready to take action.

Can you afford not to help your managers develop a cadence around meeting effectiveness?
