Running Meetings – training course

Course Overview

Well run meetings save time and help to make teams and organisations effective. Traditional training often offers cumbersome frameworks that are difficult to implement within a busy schedule.

This course, for anybody who has to chair meetings, offers a workable model and practical guidance in drawing contributions and managing difficult participants. 

Participants on running meetings training will be able to

  • Challenge the need to hold a meeting 
  •  Understand the preparation required before and during the meeting  
  •  Use differing meeting structures to ensure a more successful outcome 
  •  Set up the meeting to encourage contribution and commitment 
  •  ‘CRAFT’ the meeting to achieve the stated outcome required  
  •  Manage the dynamics of a meeting to draw contributions from quieter participants and manage the enthusiasm of the dominant contributor 
  • Gain commitment to action

Just another thank you from me for today’s session. Went down really well and people were talking about the models and continuing the discussion throughout the afternoon.

Paul has exceptional ability to take on and manage complex and sensitive programmes with an eye to the constraints of budget. The quality of advice to the business-leaders was first-rate. I would not hesitate to work with Paul and his organisation again.

I value working in partnership. We have built a relationship that has led to pilots, tweaks and better results. I would recommend BiteSize Learning for their delivery and understanding of client’s needs.

“This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.”
