It’s a reality – workers spend a large proportion of their working life in meetings. What’s sad is they often consider much of this time to be ineffective and a waste of time. That’s why it’s essential for everyone – especially leaders – to make sure they are having the most effective meetings they can have.
This practical and engaging course covers effective meeting best-practices for leaders as they plan for, conduct, and follow-up on meetings. Participants leave with concrete actions they can implement right away to reduce the number of meetings they have, improve the quality of meetings they do have, and ensure meetings held achieve their intended outcome.
This course is designed with the adult learner in mind. We blend a mix of teaching, large and small group activities, as well as real-work scenarios and application to make this course extremely helpful, relevant, and enjoyable.

Leadership is not a one-size fits all approach. In fact, research indicates that employees need different things from their leader depending on the employee’s level of competence and commitment on a particular task or goal. The problem is that most managers have only one leadership style that they apply to everyone, in every situation.
This training course will help leaders identify the style of leadership they use most often, learn to identify what style of leadership is best for an employee given their current situation, and help the leader understand how to partner with their employees to ensure they are leading situationally for optimal results.
