Business Context

Good meetings move ideas forward and get things done. But in most law firms, good meetings are rare. In fact, do you even know what a collaborative meeting should look like? When you lead or participate in meetings, how do you command attention? How well do you actively engage your colleagues in discussions? And how are problems solved collaboratively in meetings, with everyone’s participation?

Challenge & Solution

Meeting practices and skills frequently emerge from what feels right and from observed behaviors. Is this the best way to run your meetings?

Exec-Comm’s Dynamic Meeting Skills teaches attorneys how to run highly productive meetings that translate into business results. Emphasis will be placed on best practices before, during, and after collaborative meetings.
