Below are some tips that you should 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.

“My apologies for getting back at such a late date regarding your Problem-Solving Course. My feedback and comments are all positive. I was surprised to see the amount of information given in the participants manual. Thank you! It never fails that I need to add information into the participant manual. I also was glad to see the increased amount of participant activities. Participants want to be involved more in exploring the skills being transferred – this course provides more activities. I can see how many of the activities provided can be used in group settings to increase participant transfer of knowledge. Overall, this product is great. It allows for customization toward everyone’s own use while allowing the trainer to maintain the core knowledge of information to be taught in a clear and concise manner. Thank you and great job.”

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

The value of meetings – People don’t become great at meetings all on their own. Well, the truth is that many learn to act from managers, coaches, mentors, and work colleagues. And, of course, there is a contingent that had a whole lot of training and development. Use the content to explore “what makes a meeting successful” and the different types of meetings that exist in companies.

Roles and responsibilities – All too often, we see people in meetings whose perception of their skills bare’s little reference to reality. Like an employee promoted to a position which they cannot perform — we see people in meetings that do know what they are doing.

If you want your audience to be successful at participating in meetings, then you need to teach them about the various roles and responsibilities that are required. Don’t try to broaden this discussion too much as it could distract from the core message.

While it’s not always possible, we suggest that your course delivery focuses on the content provided. In this instance, use the content to examine team-building skills and the role and duties of the chairperson, timekeeper, recorder, and participants.

Meeting responsibilities – One of the most critical skills that you’ll need to discuss with your audience is meeting obligations.

No matter where you deliver these training materials, make sure that you stick close to the content provided. Be also aware that your audience will have their expectations and preconceptions. On top of that, they’ll have their own experiences and ambitions. We suggest you encourage their feedback during this part of the course to ground their learning further.

Make sure to refer to your earlier sections, as you the content to examine meeting responsibilities and the role of people at meetings. Discuss how to lead a session. There are many benefits of leading a session in business today. Such skills are critical.

Depending on your background, you might want your audience just to follow the content as provided, or you may choose to include a company or industry-specific details to illustrate practical meeting skills. Either way, the inclusion of relatable examples will generate better engagement from your audience.

Leadership styles for meetings – We live in a culture where leadership skills matter. And these styles can significantly impact the success of meetings. While some leadership practices are beneficial and need to be studied, you should use the content to explore different leadership styles. In the final section, also explore why some meetings can fail.

Amazing expert guides will get you to the place you want to be
