In Bad Meetings, There are No Innocent Bystanders: Techniques for the Facilitative Meeting Participant08 Apr 2014, Posted by facn1st in Articles
Often when one of our trainers is leading a session on meeting effectiveness, a participant will exclaim, “it’s not my fault we have bad meetings, I’m just an attendee.” The days of hiding behind your doodle-covered agenda are over. In our seminars we refer to meeting participants, not attendees, because showing up is only the first step to being an effective contributor to a meeting.
Instead of a ‘newsletter’ we’ve shifted our focus to creating a blog you can access anytime to read our articles or download tools useful for facilitating all kinds of events. We are so happy to continue providing you with resources for improving your meeting facilitation skills to drive value for your team or clients.
