Description

Hi there!

Everybody has a need to run a meeting every once in a while. Some people are natural talents in facilitating others, some need a bit of structure and method to make the meeting efficient.

This course will step by step show you what constitutes a good well-prepared meeting, how it is different from a failed one, and how to prepare one yourself. We will talk about the reasons why meetings fail, and strategies to avoid it. We'll explore the anatomy of a face-to-face session, learn about different meetings types and prepare checklists to make our meetings better.

This course will not make you a professional facilitator, but it will give you enough confidence to prepare for your next big meeting.

Yours,
Igor
