Lead Better Meetings

 

presented by Angie Flynn-McIver

 

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:  Lead Better Meetings is a one-hour interactive presentation that introduces participants to best practices they can use to transform meeting culture in their organizations, one step at a time.  This presentation begins with hearing from participants what is already working in their organizations in terms of meetings. What do they like? What is worth keeping? Then we change gears. What could be working better? What are you hearing in your companies that you’d like to change? Using the work of Al Pittampalli, Seth Godin, and other contemporary leadership thinkers, we will look at the purpose of meetings. How do they function? What are they for? What is the expectation about meetings? Is that expectation serving the work you do? Often companies fall into a routine with meetings, and they don’t step back to re-evaluate. This process invites that evaluation. We look at fields that have very effective meeting structures (performing arts, restaurants), and see what we can learn from those fields that might be relevant.

OBJECTIVE:

The what, who, and how of meetings:

  • What is the meeting for: going beyond an agenda
  • Who should be in the room?
  • How can we structure our meetings to advance our work more rapidly?

PLUS:

  • The growing challenges of meeting virtually: how can we leverage the technology available to us to make the best use of our meeting time?
  • Participants will leave this session with a strategy as well as concrete tactics they can use to start shifting their organization’s meeting culture right away. The steps can be implemented all at once or piecemeal, and they will see results either way.
