Leading Effective Meetings 201

Advanced skills for managers

Leading Effective Meetings 201 is a mastery-level workshop for managers who want to “reset” meeting culture with their teams. In some cases, managers have inherited a team with ineffective meeting skills and behaviors. In other cases, the managers may have failed to set proper expectations, leading to meetings that tend to go sideways.

This workshop is designed to help participants be effective role models for their teams. They will learn how to foster team collaboration and frame meetings so everyone understands their responsibilities, what is to be accomplished, and why. We also advise how to coach their direct reports for long-term improved meeting culture.

All Turpin Workshops are highly customized to your organization's and employees' specific goals
and challenges and can be delivered on-site or virtually.

“This has been one of the best training that I have received. I learned better structure that I can carry with me to reduce time to create presentations. In addition, I learned that I present well, and I need to have confidence in my ability.” Zakiah M., Regional Manager, Medline

Communication Training Yields Business Results

We believe that business communication training must focus on business results: making work easier, employees more successful, workplaces more cooperative, and goals more attainable.

Getting Business Done and 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 to your team and company.

Private Video Review: Capturing learners on video as they work on their real-life content, which is followed by private video playback, is an essential element of this training. It helps workshop participants understand their natural strengths (and weaknesses). As they grow their self-awareness, they can apply what they learn in class to the variety of situations they face outside of it.
