Manage Meetings

More coming soon...

Bad Meetings are Business Killers...what is the cost to your business?

New research (conducted in May 2015) from executive leadership coaches That People Thing shows:

  • Senior staff believe just 36% of meeting time helps with their jobs and only 44% of time helps the business.
  • More than a third admit to daydreaming and one in 10 plan their evening meal
  • 27% are doodling and 1% are on dating sites or looking for jobs
  • More than half (51%) say they go to meetings even when they know beforehand it is going to be a waste of time

The research found the main problem with meetings was how long they were:

  • 56% say meetings they attend are too long, followed by
  • 43% who say colleagues have not prepared, and
  • The same number who say meetings veer off topic and are not organised.

Good Meetings

What makes a good meeting?...general agreement on what makes a good meeting:

  • 59% say a meeting which makes clear decisions is valuable
  • While 45% welcome a vigorous debate and discussion

Learning Strategy

Transference of LearningDeveloping a High Performance Culture

Our courses are highly participative workshops and project forums in the true sense.  You'll have an opportunity to explore issues and practice skills during individual and group activities (Action Learning).  We believe that the most beneficial elements of our workshops are your opportunities to perform the new skills and receive feedback (not only from the facilitator, but from your peers as well).

We use “Action learning”, as a process in which groups of learners collaborate to solve actual workplace problems. In this way, organisations benefit from gaining solutions to critical challenges and participants benefit by learning from their experiences.

We follow a quick pace in our workshops so expect a high-content, high-involvement, high-energy programme.  We'll use checklists, handouts, questionnaires, learning guides, worksheets and workbooks, and samples of templates to provide you with tangible guidance in developing new skills.  Numerous tips and techniques are contained in the course materials and reinforced during exercises.  The focus and efficiency you gain from the workshop will reduce your extra workload.

To summarise – our approach is to do it rather than talk about it.
