Lead Effective Meetings
For people who lead (or aspire to lead) meetings
15% of an organization’s time is spent in meetings, but most of these meetings are inefficient or unproductive. During the Lead Effective Meetings path, you will learn how to increase engagement among meeting attendees, ask the right questions to drive decisions, and mitigate distractions that inhibit meeting productivity. You’ll also learn a proven framework for organizing and facilitating meetings so that you can ditch the traditional time-based agenda. After completing this learning path, you’ll be able to run more successful – and shorter! – meetings.
Executive Presence & Authentic Connections – Confidence and authenticity lead to trust, trust fosters connection, and connection inspires action. Master this magic formula to gain respect, forge stronger relationships, and increase your influence during any meeting or presentation, at any stage of your career. In this hands-on module, you’ll discover strategies (and science!) to overcome fear and position yourself as an invaluable leader.
Dynamic Delivery – As the saying goes, “content is king.” But when it comes to communication, your tone of voice, body language, and delivery greatly impact whether or not your content will stick. In this module, you’ll discover how to convey confidence, gain credibility, capture attention, and deliver more effective messages using subtle but powerful voice modulation and non-verbal techniques.
Engage Your Audience – From meetings to sales calls to conference keynotes, when your listeners truly feel engaged, you’ll earn trust and inspire follow-through. During this interactive module, discover expert strategies to guarantee participation, create conversation, and drive results.
Map Out Meetings – Have you experienced death by meetings? Using our Red Box Method, we reinvent the traditional agenda and show you how to make meetings more fun, focused, and efficient. You’ll learn fundamental techniques that will improve your facilitation, cut your meeting time, and keep your team focused, engaged and on track.
Powerfully Concise & Better Questions – Whether you are a manager conducting a job interview or a sales lead working with a customer, a crucial component of being an effective and concise communicator is being a good listener. In this module, you will learn active listening and questioning techniques to extract crucial information, read any audience, and drive the conversation, meeting, or presentation forward.
Handling Distracted Audiences – Bring the focus back to you whenever people are looking at their phones, talking to others, or letting their minds drift. Instead of calling attention to a distracted team member, in this module, you will learn non-aggressive techniques that assume good intent and serve the entire group without making anyone feel isolated.
