Meeting course: efficient and result-oriented

Work meetings, departmental meetings, steering committee meetings: a (too) large part of the working time is sometimes spent in meetings. How do you use that time as usefully as possible? Can you make it shorter? Does everyone have to be there every time? Effective meetings save money and motivate employees and managers. Your team can achieve little without regular meetings. Meetings are necessary in order for the cooperation to run smoothly and for everyone to stay on the same wavelength.

In the training Meeting: efficient and result-oriented, you learn how you can efficiently exchange the state of affairs without getting bogged down in endless discussions. The training also pays attention to leading the meeting and the various ways to get a message across. Body language is also discussed: the posture of a participant reveals a lot about his opinion and position. After this training, meetings will no longer be boring and exhausting, but sharp, constructive and efficient!

Teaching methodology

In the training we alternate between concrete experience, experimenting with behaviour and techniques, reflecting and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of new behaviour. This enables the recognition of success. We also emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it. In our training we invite you to continuously reflect and make connections with practice. Our aim is to increase your insight and to let you make the translation yourself. This will increase the chance of real behavioural change.

Target group

This training is ideally suited for participants who regularly hold meetings (and/or lead them) and wish to structure them.
