Mission Critical Meetings: 81 Practical Facilitation Techniques

August 23, 2014

Most people believe that meetings are a huge waste of time — and they’re right. Though meetings are essential to the life of any organization, they tend to be boring, inefficient, and unproductive. But they don’t have to be. Mission Critical Meetings: 81 Practical Facilitation Techniques shows you how to plan and facilitate meetings that participants will look forward to. You’ll learn how to:

  • improve meeting productivity
  • boost creativity and teamwork
  • effectively gather information and brainstorm ideas
  • make and implement decisions
  • evaluate the effectiveness of your meetings

The impact of a well-run meeting extends far beyond the short-term enthusiasm of its participants. When you use the techniques described in this book, members will be better equipped to stay on task, work toward a common goal, and contribute to the success of your organization.

Mission Critical Meetings: 81 Practical Facilitation Techniques is now available on Amazon.
