Effective Meetings

Planning & facilitating effective meetings for teams wanting successful outcomes

Meetings, and most importantly their outcomes, become more successful when participants better understand the role they play in the meeting. Understanding their role, whether it be as a planner, facilitator, contributor, is critical in ensuring effective meetings and successful outcomes, and helps to eliminate meeting ‘time wasting’.

Meetings can be the primary way that members experience being in a team. They enable team members to get to know each other better & feel like they ‘belong’; share valuable information; problem solve & be creative together; acknowledge, challenge & support ideas; get everyone involved, committed & responsible for getting things done; and make decisions together in order to be more productive.
