Facilitating Efficient Meetings

Forging synergies, generating energies

Insights

“Like so many things that go terribly wrong, it started as a reasonable idea. "Let's sit down and talk about it" someone said innocently long ago in a candlelit workplace, and the meeting was born. From that humble beginning came today's multi-PowerPoint monster, the workday's black hole, sucking precious time and energy into its ravenous jaws.” 
What Hubert B. Herring from the New York Times describes ranks among the main frustrations of executives all over the world; who dedicate from 1 to 8 hours per week to meetings. 75% say these could be seriously more effective. 
How can we transform meetings into inspiring and energising milestones? 

This 3-day programme will equip the meeting leader with solutions, based on the five dimensions of the facilitator.
