If they do, you’re not alone.
The principle, that meetings should be effective, isn't a new one, so it's surprising just how bad organisations still are at running productive meetings. Bad meetings waste time, money and sap the will to live from your teams. It doesn't have to be this way. By following well-established guidelines and applying them consistently, you can finally lead meetings with purpose. We've developed an e-learning 'Leading Effective Meetings' eLearning programme to help you and your team get the most value from your meetings.
Leading Effective Meetings eLearning Programme
We've created a unique online programme to teach the skills and share the tools that will transform your meetings. As we’ve taken an online approach you can complete it at a time and place of your choosing. All you need is an internet connection, a web browser and a personal desire to rid your organisation of pointless meetings.
Every organisation has its own personality and while having unproductive meetings might be common- the route causes rarely are. That's why we've developed a programme that blends the theory, with the practice. There are a number of exercises created to challenge you on your specific meeting issues.
