What is Effective Meetings Training?

If meetings are to be effective, they must be run according to correct principles, that require definite skills. This course teaches the principles and skills of effective meetings.

This Effective Meetings training course examines the common mistakes which are made and how to avoid them. We will show you how to make your meetings more purposeful, as well as developing your skills to keep meetings on-track. We discuss the importance and roles of the chairperson and minute taker. Learn how to gain co-operation from attendees, manage any conflict, or attendees who are disruptive or cynical; together with how to make logical decisions and action planning.

Customer Reviews

4.9/5 Our Meeting Skills Course is rated based on 514 reviews. More Customer Reviews >
The course content was excellent. Perfectly structured so that it flowed and made logical sense. I have been on similar courses in the past, but the content and particularly the delivery of this one, was the best I have seen. Very impactful.
The course content gave some great ideas and methods I will use regularly, for example the box method for conflict management and methods for prioritizing. The trainer was charismatic, engaging and knowledgeable.

Meeting Skills Training Course Overview

All cost-effective meetings share a set of common attributes. They are well chaired, well organised, well prepared, well attended, well recorded and highly productive, (in the sense that they achieve the purpose for which they were originally called).

The above list suggests the content for the course: We investigate the role of the Chair; how to organise an effective meeting, how to create a good agenda; how to manage the attendees, some of whom do not always behave well; how to keep accurate records of the meeting; how to ensure the meeting achieves its purpose. The purpose of meetings may be to exchange information, to solve problems, to make decisions, or any combination of these three.

People finish this course with a full understanding of how to hold highly productive meetings.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to make all meetings cost effective and productive
  • How to set and achieve goals
  • How to communicate clearly, using specific language
  • How to manage conflicts and disagreements
  • How to manage common behaviours
  • How to make good, logical decisions
  • How to get the best performance from every member of every meeting
