Effective Meeting Management  
Do your meetings run out of control? Do they start late? End late? Are they hijacked by someone only interested in seeming smart or pushing an agenda? Learn the ins-and-outs of effective meeting management, including how to prepare for the meeting, create a comprehensive agenda and run an efficient meeting. This session is designed to teach meeting leaders the skills required to schedule and manage productive meetings that address both the "task and people sides of meetings". This program is targeted to employees who attend meetings on a daily basis, recognizing they are unavoidable, but need them to be highly productive and future-focused. Intended Audience: All those who supervise.
