The "M" word that everyone hates - meetings. There are good meetings and there are bad meetings - really bad meetings.
We've all been in these meetings. They go on forever never getting to the point, and you leave wondering why you were ever present. On the other hand, effective meetings leave you energized and feeling that you've really accomplished something. According to results of a Microsoft Office survey, employees spend 5.6 hours each week in meetings, and 71 percent of respondents felt meetings weren't productive.
Join Cindy Allen-Stuckey, CEO of Making Performance Matter, to learn how to determine if a meeting is necessary, and, if so, how to hold effective meetings that get things done. She will walk you though the 4 steps to determining the need for a meeting:
- Asking yourself how to best accomplish the task at hand
- Determining the purpose of the meeting
- The numbers behind the meeting
- Agenda planning
