How To Run Effective Meetings: A Practical Workshop

Poor communication is a common cause of stress and unhappiness in the workplace. As is an ever increasing pressure on managers and staff to attend meeting, after meeting, after meeting…..

Experience suggests that a large part of company (or team) ineffectiveness can stem from a lack of understanding about how to run effective meetings. Regardless of whether a meeting is formal or informal, if it isn’t managed properly it can have a noticeably negative effect on team communication, cohesion and mutual support.

Effective meetings are a crucial element of successful business strategy, but more than that, they play a critical part in staff development and wellbeing too.

Getting more out of the meetings you do have, and being confident about identifying those that aren’t necessary, is the smart way of improving your communication strategy and, ultimately, your bottom line.
