Meetings -- are they a waste of time or do they help accomplish goals?
Teams need to meet regularly (if not frequently). Effective teams are essential to your success, and great leaders need to run effective team meetings. But not just any kind of meeting - not check-box meetings to say you had one - but meetings so the team can incorporate best practices, create team interaction and improve team dynamics.
This session is designed to give you tools and skills to effectively engage your team and lead them to high performance and discusses:
- Tips to planning and facilitating effective team meetings
- The Top 10 "Must Do's" for your team
- Rules to help keep your meetings on track
