Unnecessary and unproductive meetings waste significant time in the workplace. Yet we all rely on meetings to communicate and collaborate with our teams, coworkers, and clients regularly. This course provides a guide to effective meetings—from both the meeting facilitator’s and participant’s perspective.
As a meeting facilitator, you’ll learn about your role and responsibilities, including how to create a meeting agenda, encourage equal participation, keep a meeting on topic, and build consensus or manage conflict in meetings. As a meeting participant, you’ll learn how to speak up in meetings, voice disagreement respectfully, and be a model attendee.
