All professional people who want to acquire a methodical and professional approach to managing the meetings that they run.
One of the most important aspect of planning a meeting is to realise that there are three distinct reasons for having a meeting and that each type needs a different format for the agenda if it is to run well. Here we identify the three types of meeting and discuss how to structure the agenda in accordance with the overall aim.
Once a meeting starts the chairperson must control the flow of the meeting. He/she must make sure that the agenda is kept to and that any particular individual does not dominate the discussion.
The chairperson must ensure that the focus stays on the topic on the agenda and that the group does not digress e.g. on to another subject or personal observations. To do this he/she must make use of ‘control techniques’.
Structured Brainstorming is a simple yet flexible problem solving and decision making meeting format that can be used in a variety of situations and circumstances.
Feedback is based upon peer review using Boulden assessment checklists. Completing the assessment checklists is not only valuable to the people involved in a given case study, it also helps those completing them to gain an in-depth understanding of the building blocks that make up an excellent meeting.
All of our workshops can be delivered as Remote Training via e-learning modules plus Zoom based virtual workshops. Please see our Virtual Training page for more information.
