Distracted expressions, dull responses, drooping eyelids, you’ve seen boredom and it’s not pretty – nor is it productive! Lack of engagement is perhaps the biggest impediment to effective teaching and extraordinary meetings.
Yet you can increase enthusiasm, jumpstart creativity, expand problem-solving, and improve retention of information in every meeting and for every subject you teach. How? Focus on the four basic reasons for calling a meeting. Link those meeting elements with the four needs we all share that drive commitment and performance. Then watch enthusiasm grow.
Whether you lead meetings or facilitate training, this workshop will provide practical techniques to maintain attention, increase involvement, and improve retention. Using active learning, you’ll experience firsthand how to increase motivation, commitment, and involvement of participants. Attend this workshop and walk away with practical techniques you can use tomorrow to bust boredom wherever you find it.
