Unfortunately, ineffective meetings are the norm. Such meetings cost money, waste time, deflate morale and contribute to turnover. All too often, employees walk away from meetings thinking they are a waste of time.

Content to be covered includes the major elements involved in planning a meeting, guidelines for conducting productive meetings, and how to effectively follow through after a meeting.
