Gathering your staff in one place for a focused discussion is one of the most effective ways to keep the team motivated and working toward a common goal. But many managers allow their meetings to become mere formalities, wastes of time or even turf wars among staff members.
A poorly planned, poorly run meeting squanders a terrific opportunity to foster teamwork and enhance your team's success. How can you make your staff meetings the focused, productive and motivational events they should be?
To help you lead meetings that produce, motivate and even inspire, Business Management Daily has teamed up with a top business trainer and speaker on an exciting interactive webinar: Leading Effective Meetings
How to Excel Before, During AND After Meetings
In Leading Effective Meetings, Robbie Hyman of Professional Business Seminars will take you step-by-step through the process he uses to get things moving – and get things done. Join us Tuesday, May 11 to discover the keys to better meetings, including:
1. Before the meeting: Steps leaders must take
Managers often schedule regular staff meetings with vague goals like "keeping everyone up-to-date." Find out how to prepare a clear agenda … what to include … what to omit … and how to decide if you need a meting at all!
2. Before the meeting: Steps attendees must take
“The fool speaks because he has to say something; the wise man speaks because he has something to say.” How can you establish a “meeting culture” where everyone knows what’s expected of them – and where it’s perfectly okay to sit quietly, listen and learn?
3. During the meeting: The power of stories
There are techniques to make even the driest topics come alive. What stories can you tell that will resonate with people, and keep them motivated? What stories should you AVOID? Hyman will illustrate (and demonstrate) how a compelling story can capture and hold the attention of the room – helping you reinforce the goals and milestones you want your team working toward.
4. After the meeting: Steps leaders must take
Even the most entertaining, motivating meeting is worthless without effective follow-up on the ideas and plans discussed. Discover the post-meeting actions – including improvements on things you probably already do – that can ensure success long after everyone’s filed out of the conference room.
From the indirect benefits of meetings to why it’s okay to go “off-topic” … spurring creative thinking to building stronger relationships among your team members and more, Leading Effective Meetings will boost your productivity – and your reputation.
Leading Effective Meetings could be the most productive meeting you attend this year – until you learn Robbie Hyman’s secrets! I look forward to welcoming you to this sure-to-be inspiring event.
