Most of us spend a good deal of our lives in meetings; however, only rarely are meetings truly valuable, powerful, or memorable. We can do better! In this session, you will learn how to prepare and lead important, learning-focused meetings. Through research, step-by-step guides, case studies, and discussions, we will collaborate to have each of you prepare a top-notch, uber-professional meeting. We will also discuss and practice powerful facilitation moves to get your meetings on track and keep them focused. Get ready to impress your colleagues.
