Meetings have become a part of our everyday work life and cover a wide spectrum of formats including formal and informal; one-shots and regularly-scheduled; staff meetings; cross-departmental and cross-functional meetings; and project team meetings. When handled properly, meetings can be an efficient and productive vehicle for sharing information and accomplishing work. When handled poorly, they can be a waste of time and resources; lead to a loss in productivity; and contribute to poor morale. This course will provide participants with the tools necessary to lead effective meetings by planning ahead, communicating clearly, and avoiding common challenges and mistakes.
This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in Library Management, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
