Have you ever attended a meeting that was disorganized, took much longer than it should have, and ended with nothing to show for it? We've all been made to sit through these types of meetings at some point in our careers and we've all come to despise them. Not only are these meetings annoying to the attendees, but they are also a huge waste of one of our most valuable resources: time.

In this course, we'll look at how to put an end to these "time-wasters" and, instead, execute an effective meeting.

  • Determine the need for a meeting
