Effective Meetings SmartMeetings
1 full day + 1 halfday over a period of 5-7 weeks
Effective meetings produce better results in less time when they are structured and defined with clear objectives.
Today’s managers spend between 25-50% of their time in meetings, many of which have no specific agenda, goals or follow-up procedures or are simply held out of habit. The allotted times are often not respected, mobile phones and laptops distract and diminish focus, and many meetings adjourn without a sense of having reached a result. Does it feel like your meetings just take your time and energy instead of moving the company forward toward its’ goals? Would you like to improve your meeting effectiveness and increase productivity by implementing excellent meeting practices? We can help.
SmartMeetings (SmartaMöten®) - achieving effecitve meetings
SmartMeetings is a 1.5 day training in meeting efficiency, where the aim is fewer and shorter meetings, clearer objectives, better summations, evaluations and follow-ups, as well as a more enjoyable and productive collaboration within the group. Good meeting practices are achieved, among other things, by clearly defining the purpose and goals of the meetings, creating relevant meeting structures and ensuring the meeting guidelines and contents are appropriate. This training is suitable for all types of businesses, both private and public.
Three main focus areas
All SmartMeeting trainings are customized to cater to the specific need of the company and focus on how to take responsibility for the quality of the meetings they hold and/or attend. Our most popular trainings are designed for three main areas: for those who often lead meetings, for a specific group who work together and want to improve their meeting skills, and for companies who just want their employees to learn good meeting practices in general.
Lean and 5S
In SmartMeetings we use elements of Lean Production and the 5S system for identifying wastes of time and resources. By eliminating these, we create more time for quality work, while also achieving and maintaining order in the workplace.
Our registered trademark SmartMetoden®, translates in English to Smart Method, it represents our unique teaching method which combines theory - practical experience - individual coaching - implementation and follow-up.
