Meeting Faciliation 101

Presented by

Deb Calvert, founder of People First Leadership Academy & People First Productivity Solutions

About this talk

Too many meetings offer too little value. Most meetings include too much rehash of the same old problems, too many people multitasking and not really paying attention, and too little frank discussion that moves the needle. On top of that, the right people aren’t in the room and the action items from last time stalled out (about 10 seconds after the last meeting ended). Nothing seems to be getting done and yet the meetings continue. To drastically improve meetings, you need someone with meeting facilitation skills. Someone who can: • hold people accountable for attending, participating productively, and following up, • get everyone involved and contributing in meaningful ways, • mine for conflict, • address elephants in the room when they’re impeding progress, and • organize meetings so that they’re not a waste of time Without meeting facilitation skills, your organization is wasting big money on de rigueur meetings that get you nowhere. Join this presentation to learn how you can turn this around. Part 8 in the video series "Why Wait to Be Great?"
