Planning, Facilitating, and Executing Effective Meetings

Course Overview

This interactive, application-based full-day course is different from other courses that cover meetings.  This course is tailor made for people who lead meetings.  The class size is kept small so participants can practice their facilitation skills throughout the program.  The class is taught in group format to encourage interaction and a typical meeting setting.  Participants are lead through the material and activities by one of the top meeting experts in the country, Ken Zeigler, who is the author of Organizing for Success.

The Workshop is Broken into Three Parts

  1. How to correctly plan a meeting and organize an effective agenda.
  2. How to lead a meeting so it generates ideas and builds consensus as well as how to stay into control of a meeting so they are able to stick to their agenda.
  3. How close the meeting so it achieves their desired outcome and sets up agreement as well as action going forward.

During each chapter participants work with or take turns leading their group through a series of activities that build skills they can use at their next meeting.  At the end of the class each participant shares what they’re going to apply when they go back to work.
