This one-day skill-building participant-centered workshop is designed to assist supervisors and managers in improving their staff meetings. It provides information and practice in how to: recognize the spoken and unspoken purposes for meetings, diagnose a meeting, and deal with people problems in meetings. It also uses interactive exercises to teach the leadership functions and techniques to produce meetings that are more productive.
The workshop includes an opportunity to apply the techniques learned in the workshop in a simulated staff meeting, which includes planning, conducting, and assessing the meeting.
This one-day skill-building participant-centered workshop is designed to be an introductory program for individuals new to staffing meetings or a refresher course for individuals with moderate experience. An employee in this capacity has to manage the meeting from the sidelines or from behind the scenes, in order to keep the agenda on track without insulting the meeting chair.
The workshop will provide information and practice with: the roles people play in groups, the five sources of individual power, the basic barriers to staff effectiveness in meetings and how to overcome them, interpersonal management strategies, and a win-win approach to conflict management.
