Learn how to plan for and facilitate meetings that are well organized, highly productive and action-oriented.

Participants will learn to use five basic tools that can handle all the classic meeting complaints: 1) they are unfocused and take too long; 2) you revisit the same issues and fail to produce action items; 3) people come late and leave early; 4) the same few people dominate and 5) some people resort to personal attacks.
