Meetings That Work - 2 day course - 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
We know meetings are necessary. We also know that meetings are frustrating and are seen by many as a waste of time. It doesn’t have to be that way. In today’s world of tight finances, truncated timelines, increased workloads and demands for workplace democracy, working together is a given. We know we need to make group decisions.

Perhaps, but we believe the tools in this course will prepare you to be a better meeting facilitator – a better facilitative leader.
