Leading and Participating in Meetings That Get Better Results in Less Time
Want to get more done in meetings in less time?
Our Meeting Skills workshops help you be more successful – either as a participant or leader of all sorts of meetings. They provide tools and techniques to increase action, increase satisfaction with meetings, increase participation and reduce time required.
The Bottom Line?
Too many meetings last too long with too few results. One way to improve meeting effectiveness is to help leaders and all participants understand how they can help make the meetings work better. With everyone on board with the same skills and knowledge, meetings will be immediately more productive.

How We Operate
While we have delivered many meeting skills workshops, we prefer to work with you to design exactly what you need. Rather than getting a “canned” program, you get a workshop specifically tailored to your needs. We take the key skills and knowledge we know will make a difference, match that with the needs you have, then create the overall workshop to meet your specific needs.
Beyond our core content, exercises and practice sessions, we have a broad range of related skills and knowledge that can be used to supplement, and adjust the workshop to help it fit your organizations’ unique needs.
Because of our experience and approach, you aren’t paying for a new training design, but rather you get a customized product at a very reasonable investment.
What You Will Learn
While we customize the workshop to your needs, here are some sample learning objectives.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Perform the various meeting roles effectively.
- Record meeting notes effectively.
- Build a complete effective meeting agenda.
- Identify the various decision making styles and appropriate times for each.
- Design a meeting for each decision making style.
- Apply consensus decision making when appropriate.
- Use various brainstorming techniques.
- Use a brainstormed list to select the best or most useful items.

What You Can Expect
The workshop provides powerful tools and the opportunity to practice, so participants leave not just knowledgeable, but also confident in their new knowledge and skills. Participants will also understand that meetings can be more effective – and that that they can play a role in making that happen. While doing these things it will be interactive and enjoyable!
