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