Course Outline

Lessons

Course Length: 6hrs (1 day)

Meetings come in all shapes and sizes, from the convention to a quick huddle in an office hallway. This one-day workshop will be concerned with small working meetings; with groups that have a job to do requiring the energy, commitment, and talents of those who participate.

Members of such a group want to get some kind of result out of their time together: solving problems, brainstorming, or simply sharing information. At its best, such a group knows what it is about, and knows and utilizes the strengths of individual members.

Learning Objectives
This workshop will teach participants how to:
- Understand the value of meetings as a management tool.
- Recognize the critical planning step that makes meeting time more effective.
- Identify process tools that can help create an open and safe forum for discussion.
- Develop and practice techniques for handling counterproductive behaviors.

Target Student
This class is for everybody in a supervisory position who is concerned with arranging meetings of various kinds. If you want to get improved, meaningful results out of the meetings you organize, then this course is for you. It will help you make your meeting time more effective, create an open and safe forum for discussion, and enable you to prove yourself capable of further leadership advancement.

Course Outline

Philippe was really good at catering the training to our needs. He figured out what our prior knowledge was on the topic and went from there istead of having us go over things we already knew. If we had been in a group setting this would not have been possible. He also was helpful in letting us know how the 2003 version was different from the 2010. We therefore purchased an additional training manual for the 2010 version as we recently had it installed on our workstations.

There was a little mix up with the time the course was to be held. The website said 9-4 but it should have been 10-5, so when I arrived no one was there. However, it was dealt with quickly after a call and the trainer arrived quickly. I was the only person attending the course, it was very informative and it allowed us to touch on all of the questions I had specifically.

The instructor was excellent - she was very knowledgeable, patient, and really tried to tailor the course and specific examples to each student. The room was bit too cold in the morning and quite warm in the afternoon, so I would recommend wearing layers for comfort! I would highly recommend this course.
