Faculty: Communicating with Confidence- Oh No! Not Another Meeting!

Faculty: Communicating with Confidence- Oh No! Not Another Meeting!

April 28, 2015
River Room Crossroads

Who really enjoys going to meetings these days? Not many do. But why? In today’s business settings, our calendars are filled with meetings, but instead of helping us accomplish our work, meetings usually are a waste of time. Instead of placing the responsibility solely on the Chairperson, we propose that some of the issues with ineffective meetings lie with the participants.
This session provides techniques on:
• Being a productive meeting participant.
• Presenting information so your message is heard and can be acted on.
• Keeping the meeting on track as a Chairperson.
• Learning how to delegate tasks to appropriate people.
• Recording and writing the minutes.
• Using meetings as networking opportunities.

Light Refreshments will be served.

Interpreting services will be provided.

***Communicating with Confidence for Faculty is a 3 part workshop series. Register for one session, two or all three!

The focus of the first session on March 31st is oral communications, the second session on April 21st focuses on written communications, and the third session on April 28th focuses on effective meetings.
