Do you make the most of your meetings?
Coming to decisions during an allotted meeting time has always been a challenge. Now that meetings are largely virtual, accomplishing meeting goals efficiently and effectively and following up with action is even harder.
This webinar will teach attendees practical strategies to maximize meeting success, including pre-meeting preparation, in-meeting conventions and end-of meeting strategies to ensure that what has been decided will be acted upon. This webinar is relevant to staff at the district office, at school council or any other venue.
This webinar will help participants:
- Decide who should attend the meetings in question
- Create a framework for setting up agendas
- Plan a strategy for covering all necessary meeting topics
- Engage the non-participant
- Control the overly talkative participant
- Develop a follow-up system
Participants will receive our eBook, which will include examples of the forms a participant would use including one for a call for items, one for decision items, one for discussion items and a decision register. These examples, along with the contents of the eBook, will be practical in content, simple in form, and designed to get things done.
