manage meetings more efficiently, effectively, and expertly!
unique, skill-building workshop teaches you to organize and conduct meetings like an expert!
Research shows, nearly 12 million meetings occur each day in the USA and over half of the time spent in these meetings is wasted. Yet, the vast majority of people have no formal training in meeting management or facilitation. Meeting Magic! will teach you to how to conduct meetings more efficiently, effectively, and expertly.
Meeting Magic! is a one-of-a-kind workshop designed to give you the practical tools, techniques, and tips you need to make your meetings more productive. In one day, Meeting Magic! will teach you how to:
■ Organize, conduct, and document meetings that work;
■ Establish and maintain a climate of trust, cooperation, and involvement;
■ Deal with “problem” participants and situations; and
■ Reach consensus, generate ideas, and choose between alternatives.
Meeting Magic! will show you how to achieve dramatic results in a fraction of the time, using “think tank” techniques that have been tried and tested for more than 20 years by your workshop leader. Meeting Magic! is an interactive workshop, where you will learn (and practice) three foolproof, structured approaches to working with groups that can save you time, money, and aggravation:
■ “Idea-writing” Techniques to brainstorm, evaluate, and refine ideas;
■ “Nominal Group Techniques” to reach consensus on any issue, question, or topic; and
■ “Checker-boarding” or "morphological analysis" to evaluate and decide between alternatives.
