Introduction to Meetings and Meeting Types

Course Duration 40 Minutes

Meetings are an inescapable part of business life today; whether you attend them on a regular basis, or are responsible for calling and running them, they are likely to figure highly in your everyday working life.
But how often does a meeting fail to achieve anything concrete? How often do you sit in a meeting thinking your time could be better spent? If you are like most people, the answer is probably ‘pretty often’.
It’s important, therefore, to make sure that meetings are held only when necessary, that their objectives are clear and that they are run effectively.
This course sets out to introduce you to the subject of meetings and the different types you may encounter or run.


Course Content

• The benefits and disadvantages of using meetings to communicate information,
solve problems and make decisions

Understanding and Handling Meeting Behaviour

Course Duration 40 minutes

The success of a meeting depends to a large extent on the attitude and behaviour of the people attending it. Meetings in which the participants display a positive, supportive and constructive approach are far more likely to achieve their objectives than those whose participants are negative and unhelpful. Equally, meetings can become difficult if one or more of those attending simply displays unhelpful personality traits such as dominancy,
talkativeness or severe introversion. It is important, therefore, for anyone running a meeting to quickly identify attitudes, behaviours or personality traits that are likely to act as a bar to its success, and then to take appropriate action designed to remove or reduce their impact on the meeting.
The course will enable the learner to make such identifications and take any appropriate remedial steps.


Course Content
• Why dealing with the problem is important
• Positive and negative conflict
• Some typical negative meeting behaviours and how to deal with them:

  • The bully
  • The talker
  • The cynic
  • The non-contributor
  • The chatty neighbours
