Effective Meetings:  Increase Productivity, Collaboration, and Innovation

Effective Meetings: Increase Productivity, Collaboration, and Innovation

If you want to improve your skills to lead effective meetings and be a valuable contributor to meetings, then join us for this workshop. The workshop will cover approaches to plan and lead organized, thoughtful meetings and teleconferences that result in productivity, collaboration, and innovation. The presenter will highlight best approaches for meetings to be effective as a tool to inform, brainstorm, innovate, problem-solve, and motivate. We will review strategies to successfully facilitate meetings so you don't have to deal with the negative consequences of side conversations, passive-aggressive behavior, and hijackers. And, we'll discuss circumstances when a meeting may not be the best approach to accomplish your goals or when you should opt out of meetings to make better use of your time. This workshop aims to help you create an organizational culture of effective, productive, and uplifting meetings. 

Learning outcomes: 

  • Describe the characteristics of effective meetings.
  • Use preparation and follow-up to ensure the quality of your meetings.
  • Improve your meetings and teleconferences with effective communication. 

Join us for the morning workshop, too!
Getting Your Grant: An Introduction to the Art and Strategies of Proposal Writing. Please register separately for both programs. We’ll break for an hour in between the morning and afternoon workshops. Bring your lunch or enjoy the local cuisine. 

This workshop contributes to the MLS Strategic Plan goals of future-readiness, strong Massachusetts library community, and alignment with MBLC.
