Mastering Meetings

Have you ever been in a meeting where someone has fallen asleep?  Sounds funny doesn’t it.  But does it feel funny?  Imagine hearing someone snoring beside you!  It’s pretty horrible…and what’s more, it’s more common than you realise!

Most employees attend roughly 62 meetings per month
Managers spend 50% – 75% of their working day in meetings

Over half of all meetings are considered ‘a waste’
The average attendee will daydream, sleep or try and multi-task during meetings

Think about how much time and money is wasted in your company each week due to inefficient and ineffective meetings.  Not to mention what this does to team morale.

So, what can you do about it?

In our energising and inspiring workshops, we’ll cover all sorts of topics to make your meetings zing.  You’ll learn practical things you can implement and pass on to colleagues.  You’ll come away with a greater understanding of what motivates people, how to judge if you’ve lost someone to a daydream and how to bring them back.  You’ll feel motivated and will be hearing people itching to get going.

Topics include:

  1. Mindpower: understanding the dynamics of relationships
  2. Communication: what to do to improve communication
  3. Moods and emotions: managing moods and emotions that aren’t serving the overall outcome
  4. Trouble-makers: handling the devil’s advocate in the room
  5. Keep on track: tools and techniques avoiding detours
  6. Agenda settings: understanding their real purpose and creating a great one
  7. Do’s and don’ts: what to do and what not to do during the meeting
  8. Finally: closing meeting effectively
  9. What’s next?: ensuring follow-ups and actions are carried out as agreed

Watch your meetings light up – they will never be the same again!

Who should attend?

Anyone who attends meetings on regular basis including senior management who lead multiple teams and want to up the game of their teams.  If you have any influence at all on how meetings are organised, run and managed then this is for you.
