If check-ins, discussions, and updates are taking up more and more of your workday, your team needs to be able to run effective meetings, and participate in impactful ways. With the Effective Meetings program, your team will learn and practice how to run effective meetings and participate in meaningful ways.

The session will help your team:

  • Understand the five great reasons to call a meeting
  • Determine what roles different people should play in meetings
  • Discover the responsibility of the chair person
  • Find out the best way to handle people who ‘hijack’ meetings
  • Recognize the causes of ineffective meetings
  • Control the attendance list for each meeting
  • Learn different decision making styles and when to use each one



Our facilitators help individuals and groups become more productive by teaching key leadership skills in a way that fits your group’s preferred learning style. Each session is typically a half-day in length. Your session will be tailored to your organization, its culture, and the specific outcomes that you are looking for. The program flows through the following stages:

One-On-One Sessions – Your facilitator will work with you to gather data and an in depth understanding of your organization. They will meet with key participants to understand the needs of your group, analyze the information from these meetings, and align the outcomes with your sessions.

Effective Meetings Session – At your half-day session, your team will learn how to prepare for and effectively participate in a meeting. Your facilitator will work directly with your team as they learn and practice impactful meeting techniques in a non-stressful environment.

Follow-Up – Your facilitator will be available to you and your group after your program to answer any questions you may have about the material covered during your session.

In the weeks leading up to your Effective Meetings session, your facilitator will provide a consultation conference call to find out more about your group and the current state of meetings at your company. The information you provide helps us tailor the training to address the specific issues your team is having with their meetings.

The program itself is not a “typical” seminar or lecture. Your facilitator will train participants on a series of effective meeting formats, and then help practice them with fun group activities and discussions. The result is an effective development session that is both engaging and interactive.
