  • What are the educational goals of the training course?

    This course of the Efficiency And Productivity category aims to:

    • Provide keys for effectively directing meetings, getting all the participants to provide value during the meeting, making the most of time and reaching conclusions, determining actions and getting commitment from all of the participants.
    • Reflect on the practical application of the behaviour related to success regarding the skill in daily life.

    Who is this course intended for?

    This course can be taken by any professional who wants to direct their daily meetings more effectively with no time to spare.  Especially, those who have to work with different professionals on their team, other departments or other companies. It is especially recommended for people whose meetings go on for too long, don’t reach interesting conclusions or do achieve realistic commitment from the participants. It is also recommended for people who want to learn about essential aspects of directing meetings, to improve their knowledge about the skill or because they want to give their career a qualitative boost.

    What professional competences will you develop during the course?

    Directing effective meetings means using a series of skills and behaviours that allows us to effectively manage work groups, promoting commitment.
    In this course you will learn to:

    • Plan meetings so that you can give advanced information on the most relevant aspects for all the participants.
    • Make meetings dynamic, managing time and input and redirecting matters that go off track from the goal of the meeting.
    • Reach your goals by establishing a structure and an agenda for the meeting and the keys for following it and getting people to respect it.
    • Identify common ground in the meeting when there are augments or when people have quite different points of view and you need to reach an agreement or consensus.
    • Finish and draw up the minutes of the meeting so that everybody knows what they have to do next and the consequences, the agreements made in the reunion.
