Leading Effective Meetings 101

Fundamental skills for beginners 

This foundation-level workshop provides participants with skills and tools they need to run effective internal meetings.

Learning Objectives

During the workshop, participants will work on a real-life upcoming meeting. This workshop uses video-recorded exercises and private video review to help participants identify and develop the skills they need to succeed. Participants will learn to

  • Engage meeting attendees in the conversation
  • Speak with confidence
  • Frame the meeting using a simple organizational strategy designed to communicate the meeting’s (1) purpose, (2) direction, and (3) context
  • Create the conditions for a fruitful exchange of ideas
  • Answer questions with confidence
  • Keep the meeting on track
  • Set appropriate next steps
  • Get the business of the meeting done effectively and efficiently

Getting Business Done & Growing Leadership Capability
Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases, and careers advance. This brings positive results for your team and company.

Blended Learning
Leading Effective Meetings 101 includes pre-work and access to eCoach. Participants receive reusable job aids, reference materials, and their own in-class videos to help reinforce what they learn in class.

During the tailoring process, Turpin modifies the workshop to meet the specific needs of the business and each individual attending the training.
