Designing Effective Meetings: 

How to Have More Productive Meetings with Fewer Frustrations

Meetings can be a powerful way to accomplish work together, and to leverage the expertise of a group.  They can also be a source of frustration, concern, and overwhelm for handling information and engaging people.  Designing the process of the meeting is as important as determining the content.  Facilitating effective meetings is an impactful way to demonstrate leadership, regardless of age or experience level.  From this presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand the importance of establishing a meeting intent.
  • Use meeting preparation techniques to make meetings more effective.
  • Be better-prepared as meeting facilitator to keep it focused and on track.
  • Be better-prepared as meeting participant to keep it focused and on track.
  • Have access to a meeting design template to use for your own meetings
