PDF-InformationLeading meetings effectively

Managers spend a large part of their time in meetings. They often view these hours as being unproductive and meaningless because important subjects are not addressed. This time can be used more effectively if managers succeed at steering the conversation in the right direction. This does neither require authority nor quick-wittedness, but systematic preparation, a good structure and practice. In this workshop, you will learn how to structure meetings and you will have the opportunity to practice each phase of a meeting.
