Running Meetings That Actually Accomplish Something

No one likes meetings. For good reason. They go on much longer than they should. They frustrate more than they accomplish anything. Participants are wondering, “Why am I here? What are we solving for? When’s lunch? How far away is the restroom?” They’re often hijacked by attention-seekers, empire builders, power hogs. In the end, what do you have? Absolutely nothing.

It doesn’t have to be that way. In this workshop, Wainger Group experts teach your people how to lead meetings that motivate, focus attention, quickly and efficiently share vital information, and unite team members in dedication to your most important objectives.
