Mastering Meetings™

Meetings eat up a large percentage of an average employee's workday, yet often little is done to manage this important expenditure of time and resources.

Good meeting skills are essential for any collaborative effort; they enable employees to make decisions efficiently and respond more quickly to fast-changing demands. Since 1969, Interaction Associates has conducted research and collected data from hundreds of consulting engagements to develop a methodology for successful meetings.

The result is Mastering Meetings™, a highly experiential workshop in which participants address the most common barriers to meeting effectiveness and learn skills and strategies to run meetings that are shorter, more focused, and yield tangible outcomes.

Who should attend

The workshop is designed for people who spend more than 10% of their time in meetings, including:

  • Meeting leaders.
  • Meeting participants.
  • Meeting facilitators.

Benefits for participants

During the basic one-day workshop, participants acquire the skills to improve each stage of a meeting — setting up, conducting, and following through.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn to:

  • Keep meetings focused and on track.
  • Encourage everyone to participate.
  • Create effective action plans.
  • Leverage the time and energy of people in the room.
