Meeting Management Training

Meeting Management Training

Like flowers, meetings come in all shapes and sizes - from the convention to a quick huddle in an office hallway. This workshop will be concerned with small working meetings - with groups that have a job to do requiring the energy, commitment, and talents of those who participate.

Members of such a group want to get some kind of result out of their time together; solving problems, setting goals or priorities, or simply defining with each other some mutual needs and fears and hopes. At its best, such a group knows what it is about, and knows and utilises the strengths of individual members.
