TRAINING FOR MEETING EFFECTIVENESS

TRAINING FOR MEETING EFFECTIVENESS

Meeting effectiveness is a set of tools. We have covered most, if not all, of those tools in this publication.

Meeting effectiveness is also a discipline. There are certain specific things you need to do every time in order to have a successful meeting. Meeting effectiveness is also a learned skill that is accompanied by knowledge of certain templates, protocols, and best practices.

Team leaders and managers can learn how to run better meetings, and team members can learn how to be more effective meeting participants. There are a number of ways of approaching learning in the area of meeting management, meeting facilitation, and meeting participation.

1. Intact Team Building. In this model, a functioning team, perhaps as part of an overall team-building intervention, analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of their meetings and then develops a plan for improvement. This approach is enhanced by the use of a survey instrument that provides data on the effectiveness of the team’s meeting management. See the Resources on the next page for a reference to a meeting effectiveness survey. The value of this approach is that all members commit to supporting the implementation of the improvement plan.
