Meeting Skills

Short description:

A 2-day programme in which we gradually explore the different stages of the process of organizing effective meetings. After collecting the experiences of the participants with the subject we discuss the prerequisites for organizing a meeting.  Basically we can distinguish 3 stages: before, during and after the meeting. In an interactive way the participants experience how they can improve the outcome and the group process.  This training is experienced based learning; active participation is logically assumed. The trainees will also leave with a practical toolbox of techniques how they can improve the meetings in which they participate. Before the training the participants receive a questionnaire to reflect on their expectations and learning points for the training.
