Meeting Overload: Are Your Meetings as Efficient and Effective as They Can Be?

According to Forbes, unplanned interruptions aren’t the only barriers to getting work done in the corporate world. Planned interruptions, in the form of regularly scheduled meetings, may be an even bigger problem. Have you heard the quote that a meeting is “an event where minutes are taken and hours are lost?” There are about 11 million meetings taking place in America every day, and a third of them are unproductive. An estimated $37 billion is lost every year as a result. That statistic suggests that while we have tons of meetings, we are really not that great at having them!

  • How much time is being spent in meetings at your workplace?
  • Are your people overwhelmed and distracted by meetings?
  • Is your organization looking for ways to reduce costs?
  • Meetings now consume 30-40% of the average professional’s day. Remarkably, one third of this time is wasted.
  • 62% of all meetings lack a clearly stated objective and agenda, and almost half of all professionals rate the quality of meetings at their organization as fair to poor.

Steve Welland will lead participants through an overview of his program “Fearless Facilitation”, designed to build confidence and competence in leading effective meetings. By focusing on the roles, responsibilities,knowledge, and skills of a fearless facilitator, participants will learn how to increase the value and outcomes of their meetings, yielding wise decisions and actions.
