Interactive Workshop: How to run meetings that (actually) achieve results

Meetings are one of the largest forms of organizational waste today: 1⁄3 of all meetings are considered a waste of time; executives waste almost 8 hours per week in unproductive meetings; and an estimated $37 billion dollars per year is wasted on meetings. Besides financial costs, poorly-run meetings increase frustration, employee disengagement and harm an organization’s culture.

On the flip side, improving meeting effectiveness can be one of the greatest opportunities for organizations to drive productivity, build a healthy culture, and achieve greater results.

What will you learn?

Are you a manager from a mission-driven organization who is tired of wasting time in unproductive meetings? Do you struggle to use meetings effectively to engage colleagues or volunteers? Join Meeteor CEO Mamie Kanfer Stewart and Change Management Specialist Tai Tsao in this half-day interactive workshop! You’ll learn effective meeting practices that transform your meeting culture, like meeting preparation, facilitation, note-taking, and follow-through. You’ll also learn how to leverage technology to facilitate, sustain, and improve these practices over the long-term.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll walk away with:

  • Tips and approaches that address common meeting challenges.

  • An action plan to implement effective meeting practices with your team or organization.

  • Greater confidence to contribute to and participate in meetings.

Meeteor’s format for creating meeting agendas is SENSATIONAL! The template was an excellent source to organize my thoughts and share information with meeting participants in advance including expected outcomes. I feel much more prepared, organized, and fueled for success!
