What does it cost you to lose an hour? Most people are losing at least 2 hours per week to ineffective meetings. What if that time is spent on internal meetings, when instead you could be working on client work? Now how much is this costing you?
What if spending one hour could give you the tools and tactics you need to improve over 100 meetings per year?
Hi, I'm Amber and my meetings used to be ineffective and well, sometimes really boring.
Like a lot of meeting facilitators, I wanted my meetings to be effective and help the organization make forward progress. But it seemed liked my meetings were so inconsistent. Some were great- some were a waste of an hour. It was really frustrating.
Then I realized my meeting planning was the problem. I was making them work for me- but only me.
I started picking up some simple strategies for how to consider the participants viewpoint. I started learning what information to share and when. My meeting quality and outcomes kept getting better and better. Participants started to want to come to my meetings. Best of all, they were more likely to be prepared. They were engaged and everyone's needs were met.
In this course, I'll share the tactics and strategies I've learned along the way.
