Why you should take this course
Meetings are used for so many different purposes yet they are often dreaded and avoided by individuals and teams. While they seem quite simple on the surface, there is actually a lot of details to get right for meetings to be successful.
Managing meetings effectively is an essential skillset for team leaders and supervisors. On this course team leaders and supervisors will learn everything they need to know about managing meetings effectively. Gain the background knowledge and fundamental practical skills.
Our Managing Meetings course is suitable for all team leaders and supervisors.
