Course Description

Meetings are a weekly – sometimes daily – ritual for many library administrators and staff. According to a recent study by consulting firm, Korn Ferry, more than a third of respondents feel they waste between 2-5 hours a week on unproductive meetings or phone calls. It's time to put a stop to holding unnecessary meetings that waste money, waste time and are overall destructive to morale.

In this session you will learn the skills, techniques and strategies to plan, lead and participate effectively in meetings of all kinds. From impromptu, on the spot discussions between colleagues to formal presentations and meetings with committees, departments, and/or library stakeholders, you'll be better prepared to get the most out of your time, staff and company's dime.
