Online – No More Dodgeball Meetings – Ask Questions Like a CEO

November 19, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am

Sponsored by Executive Education in partnership with The Center for Management Terms and Practices

Show your team how to bring the right questions into every staff and sales meeting.
Have you ever been in a meeting where it seems people are just trying to advance their own ideas—and dodge everyone else’s?  Learn how to teach your team a simple technique for bringing clarity and focus to every meeting.  In one hour, you’ll learn how to build a 1/4-Page Meeting Planner using The GMs Index, the standard body of knowledge for general management. You’ll work through a mini-case to ensure your three killer questions are at the CEO’s level. (This workshop is great for planning sales and customer meetings, as well.)

Session Objectives
In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to:

  •  Get everyone to focus quickly on the core issues
  •  Prevent unneeded follow-up meetings—and lengthy email chains
  •  Learn the language of management that gets the decision-maker’s attention
  •  Strike a blow against management jargon
  • Add focus to shortened virtual meetings with increased outcomes
