Tips & Techniques:  Leading Successful Meetings

Cost - $449/person (Lunch and Refreshements Included)


Do you lead meetings where people simply show up, don’t engage, and when they walk away, they have taken little or no accountability for moving towards next steps? If you are looking to impact behaviours of those who attend your meetings and want them to take action, you will benefit from the techniques shared in this workshop. We will give you a framework to use for designing and delivering meetings that are purposeful and results-oriented. Knowing your role and those of others, including what to do before, during and after a meeting, will allow you to create an environment that fosters shared responsibility of all team members - to action measurable deliverables resulting from the meeting.
