Team leaders' meeting skills development
An in-depth programme for team leaders and meeting chairs

Work in groups with other team leaders to learn new tools and techniques and practice advanced meeting facilitation skills which you can immediately apply to your own meetings. Includes an online meeting facilitation toolkit and 'clinic/coaching' sessions to focus on particular problems participants encounter in their meetings.
The business case - poor meetings are expensive meetings
We are always amazed at how much time is spent in meetings and how relatively little time is spent working on making them more effective. Meetings are resource hungry, so they need to be good!
The maths: If a team of 10 people, at an average full employment cost of £30,000, spend 2 hours a day in meetings, the annual spend is over £80,000. About 2.7 full time employees.
The benefits of improving: If you could make the meetings just 20% more effective your annual saving is £16,000. You could choose to spend less time in meetings or use the extra time for more value-added activities.
You will also get huge secondary benefits of greater team member satisfaction, increased morale and higher employee energy from NOT holding meetings that drain people and that everyone knows are
Most importantly the chances of achieving your goals will increase.
Where are you on the Zoom - Doom scale now? If you're not near the top you are in the majority! A Blind poll found that only one in five Zoom meeting attendees were actively listening and providing live feedback.
This is very costly for your business, but it is not too late to turn Zoom fatigue into Zoom energy.
