What you will learn:

You can learn a lot about any organization by observing what takes place in meetings. Meetings are an engrained and essential structure to get work done, and they also are a key driver for the team's culture. So why have we all experienced meetings that are unproductive, boring, or lead to the dreaded "meeting after the meeting"? Why have we all likely led some of those meetings ourselves?

In this Elective, we'll examine how meetings relate to and foster (or damage!) an organizational culture. We'll examine common traps that we can fall into when planning, executing, and participating in meetings and how our approach to meetings impacts productivity and inclusivity for our teams. By discussing and experiencing high impact strategies, participants will walk away with tangible tools to use as they plan and facilitate their upcoming meetings. These tools will increase their teams productivy, and participants will also draw connections for how these strategies will help foster a more positive and inclusive culture across their team.
