Meetings are serious business! Companies often think of a one-hour meeting as a one-hour meeting, but that is not true, unless there is only one person in that meeting. If there are 10 people in the meeting, it’s a 10-hour meeting; It’s 10 hours of productivity taken from the rest of the organization. Depending upon salaries, one meeting could cost up to $100,000. In this workshop participants will discover how to preplan a meeting; ensure that meeting attendees use appropriate Interpersonal Behavior Skills; create a PDORA for every meeting (Purpose, Desired Outcome, Roles, Agenda); establish and communicate a code of conduct; deal effectively with disruptive and other unacceptable meeting behaviors; calibrate and prioritize agenda topics; look at well- established ways to ensure everyone leaves the meeting understanding agreements, next steps and feeling good about the experience (and eager to attend their next well organized, adeptly facilitated and productive meeting).
