Product Description

You Can Run Meetings That Produce Results—And Are Enjoyable, Too!


According to industry reports, employees can spend anywhere from 25% to 50% of their time in meetings. If over half of those are a waste of time, as surveys show, then we’re doing a lot of nothing with a lot of our time! What’s more: The real cost of meetings—from the hard travel costs to lost productivity costs—may be higher than you think.

The increasing cost of meetings compels today’s businesses to take a close look at how to make meetings work well—that is, how to use employee time and company money wisely.

Learn how to run effective and productive meetings in this practical-minded session presented by business management expert Marcia Zidle. Zidle will show you how to inspire active participation in the discussion, solicit wider input, enhance communication overall, and boost creativity and teamwork—all so that the meeting outcome is a valuable use of everyone’s time and effort.

After attending this audio event, you will be equipped with tricks to run meetings that leave your employees feeling energized and excited about their work. You might even have a little fun along with your extra productivity! Plus, you’ll understand how to avoid scheduling unnecessary meetings, how to optimize meeting length, and how to establish post-meeting follow-ups to ensure everyone stays on track with your new time-efficient progress.
