Chairing Effective Meetings

Back to List of Topics

1-day Open Course

Central London

or One-to-One Training

 

Course Overview

One of the most common frustrations reported in the workplace is the waste of time and energy given to poorly managed meetings. Not only can a poorly managed meeting fail to achieve its objectives, it can lead to a loss of valuable time, money and goodwill.

This course will equip delegates with the valuable skills and techniques needed to plan, lead and participate in meetings of any kind including: impromptu discussions between colleagues; regular project meetings; departmental/team meetings; and meetings with external suppliers or customers. It will help delegates to ensure that the meetings they chair are concise, structured and meaningful to all involved. Delegates will learn how to effectively manage the flow of the meeting, how to encourage creativity and promote effective contributions from everyone present. It will also help them to develop skills in effective listening, group management, problem solving and conflict management.

It is particularly recommended for anyone who chairs meetings as part of their job... whether you are a regular chair who's frustrated by the lack co-operation or the behaviour of meeting participants, or whether you are struggling to keep things on track as an occasional chair, there is always room for improved communication, focus and creativity - and this course will show you how to get the most out of the valuable time invested in your meetings.

Meeting Management AssessmentH2 Assessments & Tests

In addition to the face-to-face element of the training, we also offer an optional assessment, which can be completed as a self-assessment or as a 360 degree appraisal of the key competencies that have been determined to under-pin effective meeting management and facilitation. Whist it is entirely optional, the assessment is extremely useful for enhancing self-awareness and for providing a focus for on-going learning and development. The test is in interactive pdf format and can be completed at any time on your own computer. Once you have completed the test, you simply click on a "submit" button and we will automatically receive your answers for collation into a comprehensive printed report, including some useful suggestions of potential areas for improvement.

One-to-One Training

As an alternative to attending an open course with delegates from other organisations, we also offer "Chairing Effective Meetings" as individual training on a date of your choice. Feedback from delegates who have had a one-to-one session is extremely positive, as it means that you can have the undivided attention of one of our experienced trainers, and can therefore make sure that the session is entirely focussed on your individual needs/interests.

Our standard one-to-one training includes a flexible combination of face-to-face and telephone sessions. Most popular is a 3-4 hour face-to-face session either at your work premises, or at a convenient local venue, plus two one-hour telephone sessions - one before and one after the training. The telephone sessions help us to ensure that the face-to-face training is tailored exactly to your needs and that you are able to put your learning into practice to make real improvements to your performance at work.

The cost is dependent upon the location and duration of the face-to-face session and we offer discounts for two or more sessions. For example, our standard one-to-one training with the face-to-face session in Central London costs £600 +VAT.
