Effective meetings are a competitive advantage for organizations. The ability to set up a conversation, manage the conversation, and wrap it up effectively is usually the missing piece in most organizations. Meetings continue to be a source of frustration—especially when people end up taking work home to make up for time lost in unproductive meetings. Make your meetings a welcome part of your week with this workshop on process skills, which can also expand your influence in the organization. While most people think that passion, knowledge, and drive are all they need to succeed, your meeting skills are what will set you apart.

In preparation, please note your primary irritations about meetings. Also, think about what would make the meetings you attend better.
