IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS

Bring in an experienced MLI trainer to help you and your team learn how to make meetings more productive and profitable.

BAD MEETINGS ARE BAD FOR BUSINESS

Do you and your team have unproductive meetings because:

  • There is an inexperienced facilitator running the meetings?
  • You don't know why you're meeting?
  • No agenda? No follow-up? No accountability?
  • You've given up hope?

Bad meetings are costing your organization too much precious time and money.

STEP 1: TALK AND LEARN

  • We'll talk with you to get an understanding of your meeting strengths and pain points
  • We'll also help you and your team figure out how to fit this training into your schedule
    • Example 1: 1/2 day workshop at your location
    • Example 2: split the workshop into 2 X 2 hour sessions (so you and your team don't have to commit to much time away from work)

STEP 2: PLAN FOR ACTION

We'll explain what's going to happen in the workshop and then create a custom workshop plan to suit your needs. This action plan will include:

  • Pre-interviews: One of our experienced trainers will pre-interview key people on your team, to get an understanding about what's really going on in your meetings
  • Confidentiality: This will be done with complete confidentiality – and ultimately the trainer will only address issues during the training (and not refer to the specific people who brought them up. Why do pre-interviews? Because then we don't waste any time in ‘discovery' on the day of the training itself
  • Workbook: We'll send you a copy of the practical and informative workbook that each person who does the training will receive
  • 10-Step System: We'll introduce you to our proven 10-Step Meeting Leadership Development System
  • Questions and Concerns: We'll also be ready to address any other questions you may have before you make this training investment

STEP 3: TAKE ACTION

Our experienced trainer teach the workshop to you and your team at your location.

Here's an introduction to the 10-Step Meeting Leadership Development System that you and your team will learn.

STEP 1. Get Real With Yourself

In this step you'll discover techniques that will help you take responsibility for how you act during a meeting. So whether you're the facilitator or a participant, the techniques you learn in step 1 will make you more effective in every meeting you attend.

Step 2: Get Real With Your Team

In this step you'll find practical ways to help you build trust with your meeting teammates. From effective listening techniques, to ensuring that you know how to fight effectively, the techniques you'll learn in this section will increase productivity in your meetings.

Step 3: Know Your Total Meeting Cost

How much are you spending per hour to meet with your team? This section will help you figure out how to measure the actual cost of a meeting which will then allow you to determine whether or not your meetings are actually worth having.

Step 4: Get A Great Facilitator

In this step you'll learn how to rate your current meeting leader. Once you determine their competency level, then you can decide whether or not they ‘gotta grow' or ‘gotta go'.

Step 5: Link The Meeting To Your Strategy

Find out how you can stop any meeting, at any moment, and connect that moment directly to your organizational strategy. Once you learn this and apply this powerful technique, your meetings will give you a competitive edge within your industry.

Step 6: Build A Blockbuster AGENDA

Imagine what it would be like if every one of your meetings was as exciting as your favourite Hollywood blockbuster movie? Well, in step 6 you'll find out how to do just that by creating inspiring agendas in a new and unique way.

Step 7: Meet In The Right Space

Where you meet matters as much as what you are meeting about. So step 7 will help you consider everything you need to create an exceptional meeting space that inspires your team to achieve greatness during meetings.

Step 8: Get Awesome Meeting Resources

No two meetings are the same. What worked for you last time may not work for you again. Because of this you need a variety of tools to help you optimize every meeting you attend. As a result, step 8 offers great book titles, articles, and links to information and inspiration that will help you make your next meeting exceptional.

Step 9: Follow Up FAST

Want to make more money? Have happier customers? Engaged staff? A more effective Board? Then you will want to learn to use our FAST techniques after every meeting you attend.

Step 10: Take Action and get inspired!

In this step we'll help you to figure out how to get inspired so you can ultimately improve your meeting culture.

STEP 4: ONGOING ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT

  • We'll also be available to offer support and additional resources as needed
