About this Event

A meeting can be a powerful leadership tool. How we think about, plan, prepare others, and conduct them makes all the difference. It’s useful to consider meetings as strategic structures or processes. Depending on how they are used, meetings can motivate and energize those who report to us, supporting us in creating an environment of shared leadership in which people step up, own outcomes, share challenges, new ideas, and expand what’s possible. They can be a tool for culture change. Yet, often people don’t like meetings or know how to use them strategically. Maximize your impact through how you use your meetings. What environment do you want to cultivate? What new behaviors do you want to see? What shifts do you want to see in how people approach their roles and think?

Join us to explore:

  • Creating an environment in which others are engaged and own the meeting outcome you seek to produce
  • Activating ownership, leadership through how you plan and conduct meetings
  • Using the meeting to shift how others think and act
  • A model for using a meeting as a focal point for a process to shift mindsets and have conversations you have not had before together
  • 10 common meeting traps to avoid

This session is ideal for anyone involved in planning a meeting, or interested in using them well – firm leaders, department managers and their teams, meeting planners, administrative assistants, office managers, or facilitators.

To get the most value from the session, consider bringing your peers or entire team so you can develop and implement new practices together at your organization!

Tuition includes light breakfast, coffee or tea.
