Overview

When did you last go to a really great meeting?  One that was short and to the point, that broke new ground and left everyone feeling enthusiastic and clear about how to proceed?  That kind of meeting is very rare, but with training and practice, anyone can learn to run great meetings.

The ability to run effective meetings is really important skill that will make your job as a manager or leader much easier and more rewarding.

We're on a mission to put an end to boring meetings that no one wants to attend, where the same old points are made and nothing gets decided.

This unique one day course will give you some practical tools and techniques so you can run the best meetings you've ever attended.  

What you'll learn

  • Safe ways to raise issues and deal constructively with conflict
  • How to use and adapt your own style as a facilitator to get the best out of your group
