Let’s learn what you will receive.

Course overview

To maximize the effectiveness of meetings, people need to change their behaviors.

Course participants will learn about the value of meetings and the roles and responsibilities required.

This course is about more than talking about meetings, leading meetings, and leadership styles.

The course is for people serious about developing their effective meeting skills, and who are ready to bring their learning to the next level.

Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 4 key sections of this training course.

1. Teach your audience about the value of meetings

People don’t become effective within meetings all on their own.

In truth, many people learn from others. And, they learn to behave in meetings with other managers, coaches, mentors, and work colleagues.

You must show your audience that you understand their struggles.

When they believe that, you can offer solutions that will be accepted.

And, when you help people imagine what it would be like to be effective within meetings, it will make them feel more connected. They’ll develop more understanding. And, they’ll build more practical skills.

To do this, use the content provided to:

  • Explore “what makes a meeting successful”.
  • Discuss the different types of meetings that exist.

2. Focus on roles and responsibilities

When someone attends this course, they’re also communicating that they want to learn more about roles and responsibilities within meetings.

All you need to do is to show them how to be successful at participating in meetings.

Sounds easy?

Well, it’s not that difficult.

Focus the content to examine team-building skills and the role and duties of the chairperson, timekeeper, recorder, and participants.

3. Inject passion into meeting responsibilities

One of the most critical skills that you’ll need to discuss is meeting obligations.

By injecting passion within meetings, your audience will see where the benefits of the meetings are coming from. And, what effective meeting behaviors they can focus on. Use the content provided to:

  • Examine meeting responsibilities and the role of people at meetings.
  • Discuss how to lead a meeting.

4. Discover leadership styles for meetings

We live in a culture where leadership skills matter. And, these styles can significantly impact on the success of meetings.

When it comes to driving this message home, use the content to explore different leadership styles. Next, examine why some meetings fail.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to recognize that some meetings can go wrong.

Aim to create an atmosphere that builds trust and shows you’re offering solutions to their needs.

Getting started

Below are some bonus tips that you should also consider while delivering this course.

  • The first tip is that managing meetings is a highly sought-after skill for today’s modern companies. This is something we typically hear from clients with leadership skills training needs.
  • The second tip is that productive meetings are not always as simple as getting people into a room. We’ve learned that productive meetings occur when the right people are brought together for a specific purpose and result. And, when all members attending a meeting have the right skills, then the impact can be compelling.
  • The next tip is to put yourself in the shoes of your audience and start by using the content to explore managing meetings. Then, focus on the central aspects of formal meetings (e.g., agenda, minutes). And, help your audience to understand and appreciate the importance of approaching informal meetings in the right way. Next, share aspects of functional, symbolic, and functionally focused meetings. And, finally, outline the success factors involved.
