Studies show that millions of meetings are held every day in the United States and that thousands of dollars are spent on every meeting hour where meetings include multiple executives as attendees. Are all these meetings a business investment or a waste of time? Sadly, many of those same studies indicate that managers who attended the meetings felt half of their investment was wasted. If the meetings are important enough to be held, then why don’t the leaders of the organization insist that they be better guided?
Could the gift of best dating be the ultimate management award this year? If meeting leaders can learn how to achieve more in the same amount of time or less, the answer is definitely yes. If the answer is yes, how can this gift of better dating come about?
There are many good training courses and books on meeting management. When looking for a good meeting leadership course, in addition to using the words “meeting management,” look for courses that include some form of initiative or facilitate in the course title. Sometimes meeting management course titles seem masked by something else or meeting training is a component of a larger package offered as a longer seminar. The benefit of taking a course is the concentrated effort on learning the tools and techniques along with the networking and ideas of other course participants who have the same experience in business. The main drawback is the time away from work to attend the course, which is why many do not take advantage of this formal training option.
Reading and following a meeting management book is a good alternative to formal training, if the meeting leader is committed to following the guidelines and the book includes usable examples or modules. One option with examples and modules is the new book “RA! RA! A Meeting Wizard’s Approach” (ISBN 1-4196-5367-9). This book and others on meeting management can be purchased through Amazon or ordered from bookstores. The main advantage of informal learning from a book is that it is portable and can be read during or outside working hours using small, scattered segments of time rather than consecutive hours. Books often include the same advantage of tips, tools and techniques but in a different format than what is found in a formal course. The downside could be the lack of networking and discussions with other course participants who are learning the meeting leadership material at the same time. However, this disadvantage can be overcome by forming a book study group in the workplace or by having a regular meeting group explore the book materials and learn better meeting management together.
Going back to dating studies, they also show that the number of encounters is increasing and so is their duration. To save money, time, and management worries, give bosses the gift of better meetings as a direction to greater profits and greater productivity. Better meetings lead to more productive employees, less wasted time and money, and less costs mean higher profit margins. Make meetings a business investment rather than a waste of time by reading a book or taking a course so more people become better meeting leaders. Give and share the gift of better dating this year.
