Conducting Effective Meetings

In the Planning & Conducting Effective Meetings workshop, TKFay gives participants a thorough understanding of the process behind running an effective meeting.

Participants will acquire skills and techniques that will allow them to select the appropriate meeting format, set an agenda, establish ground rules, and properly manage difficult situations and disruptive behaviors.
