Do you feel like you waste a lot of time in meetings? Are you frustrated when a meeting ends without accomplishing anything? You’re not alone. Many of us spend a lot of time in meetings, but we don’t always put in the planning and preparation time necessary to make our meetings efficient and productive. 


In this mini-course, not only will you learn what it takes to prepare for and run an effective meeting, but you may realize that there are times when a meeting is not needed at all! When you do need to hold a meeting, there are some basic guidelines you can follow to keep the meeting on track and ensure that you accomplish your meeting goals.
