Online – Optimize Your Management Meeting

May 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

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

Meetings are where decisions are made, but not where your organization makes money. That’s why it’s important to run focused meetings – in person or virtually – that make the best use of everyone’s time and talents. This short session will help you develop a critical skill that successful professionals employ in running effective, efficient meetings that result in lasting decisions: Asking great questions.

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

  • Snap management meetings into focus.
  • Communicate with other leaders more effectively by understanding how to speak the CEO’s “language”.
  • Collaborate with peers also keenly interested in optimizing meeting time.
  • Learn simple tools to prepare and keep you meeting focused on the reason you are there.

Who Should Attend
This session is targeted at those responsible for leading, planning, and even attending meetings that would benefit from minimizing their time in meetings, while maximizing efficient use of work time before and after.

Derrick Van Mell, CEO and Founder of The Center for Management Terms and Practices, has spent the past 25 years working with hundreds of leaders and organizations as a management advisor. Derrick’s passion for bringing clarity and simplicity to the world of work has provided a framework for helping organizations focus on clear and effective communication to save time, reduce errors, and create rewarding work.
