Excelling at Facilitation


Excelling at Facilitation

We've all experienced a meeting that seemed to drag on and on with nothing accomplished. This short course will teach you how to improve your meeting facilitation skills so your team doesn't have to sit through another one.

Your skill at leading and managing project team meetings is critical to keeping your team focused and accomplishing its goals. From determining when and if a meeting is needed to documenting an agenda and minutes, every step of the meeting plan is explored so you can become more comfortable leading and managing.

Virtual short courses do not include materials or headsets.
