RUNNING EFFECTIVE MEETINGS: Creating Better Organizations through Better Meetings

Organizational Performance Group Building Skills

Do you ever leave a meeting and think, “What was the point of that?” or “What did I learn in that meeting?” We’ve got the solution for you. Don’t let meetings waste your time.

Meetings are one of the primary ways that we do work in the 21st century. Badly run meetings waste time, talent, and money. Groups often struggle to be efficient and effective and to work in the best interest of the whole while honoring the input of the experts in the group. Structuring meetings well can be the difference between full, effective attendance and participation in a group versus lackluster commitment.
