I am pleased to announce that my latest course with Pluralsight, How to Run Effective Meetings, is now released and available to watch. Below is a short sample.
Have you ever sat in a meeting with that sinking feeling that you are just wasting your time. Perhaps the meeting is going nowhere, or there is no agenda? Does the person running the meeting struggle to keep it on topic?
These are all very common problems and I have certainly sat through my fair share of pointless meetings. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
A meeting should be a great platform to bring people together to solve problems, plan projects and drive businesses forwards, and not a drain on peoples enthusiasm.
