Have you ever sat through a meeting that you felt was a waste of your time? Maybe the meeting wasn't relevant to you or it was just poorly run. Perhaps it lacked a clear purpose.

This course outlines a process for preparing for effective meetings. First, you'll learn how to clarify the purpose and objectives of a meeting.

Fourth, you'll learn how to create the agenda. And fifth, you'll learn how to prepare yourself and your participants for a successful meeting.
