Lewisville, TX (PressExposure) September 29, 2007 -- Managers and workers are often complaining that meetings in the organization are a waste of time. Make meetings more productive and see the employees get more motivated and their bosses will be pleased and grateful. To make meetings better, ensure the meeting leaders and attendees are trained in how to hold a meeting. If formal training is too expensive or time-consuming, then consider getting a book that will act as a self-paced training tool that the meeting leader can use to plan meetings and train attendees using tools that can be deployed throughout the organization.
One such book to give is the new meeting management book titled âR.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizardâs Approachâ (ISBN 1-4196-5367-9) by Shirley Fine Lee. The book may be bought through http://www.Amazon.com. This book contains suggestions for making meetings better using traditional meeting tools such as roles, an agenda, records, and actions along with providing sample forms to make using the tools easier. In addition, the book provides forms for planning presentations, setting-up facilities, and evaluating the effectiveness of each meeting. Not only does the book give ideas to start the meetings off correctly, it also shares ideas on how to handle problems that may derail the meetings and how to get the meeting back on track.
Whether through formal training or utilizing a book, once the meeting leader and attendees begin using tools for better meetings they will use them consistently to make each meeting more effective. Better meetings lead to higher motivation, which leads to more productivity. Bosses will appreciate their employeeâs productivity and the efficiency in which they handle meetings.
