Workshop Overview

WorkingSm@rt in Meetings is a powerful hands-on workshop designed to give participants a practical process to get better results and higher satisfaction from meetings. It combines information from the latest meetings research with ample opportunity for participant exercises and sharing of ideas. Structured activities and examples give participants a chance to practice new behaviors as they learn.

With meetings being a staple part of any healthy team, why then do they sometimes feel stale and leave team members no better than where they were beforehand? This happens when meetings become part of a routine and not a process. The same way brushing your teeth in the morning is simply something one does, meetings can become something teams just do, lacking any real purpose driving them.

WorkingSm@rt in Meetings will help free attendees of this thinking and highlight the processes and tools needed to make any meeting a success.
