Managers, supervisors and team leaders are the foundation of any organisation. Providing your colleagues with the right management training and support is vital in assisting them and their people to accomplish the crucial goals expected of them.
Solving problems, making decisions and disclosing information can be effectively done in meetings, or it could be a pointless waste of time. The difference between productive and unproductive meetings is how they are conducted and how everyone is provided with a chance to participate.

Ask yourself, how many meetings in your organisation recently start or finish late? Do these meeting not have any agenda or are not managed well? In reflecting on this, when was the last time any of your management team agreed to the effectiveness or the cost of holding a meeting?
According to a recent survey of managers and supervisors, the consistent amount of time wasted in most meetings, depending on the type, ranged between 20 to 70 per cent!
This is why the half-day Managing Meetings© seminar is a very important program for any organisation that conducts a large amount of meetings.
Participants throughout the Managing Meetings© seminar, will learn how to write a dynamic, issue driven agenda that develops discussions and promotes active involvement from all participants. They will apply useful techniques to get meeting attendees fully engaged and motivated to contribute and provide worthwhile input.
