Effective team meetings for technical professionals

Making productive team meetings a reality and everyday practice

Type of Course: Personal Development
Course Reference: HOC-016

People in technical and professional functions must work effectively, especially when it
comes to team meetings. Effective team meetings can revitalise, develop and define a team,
form a collective identity, provide purpose and a vehicle with which productivity, capability,
change and capacity can be realised and unleashed.

Although, the role of the chairperson in a meeting is important for success, both in terms of
productivity and engagement, the participation from attendees is crucial, and the skills of
interpersonal communication and listening, coupled with excellent planning will result in an effective team meeting. Join us on this course that has tremendous power to help you
harness your skills, knowledge, team member attendance and chairing potential.

This course has been designed to accommodate various learning styles and to allow participants to learn from theory and practice, group discussions, individual reflection on the
current practice. The participants will be encouraged to implement learnt skills in their work.

The aim of this course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to
effectively contribute in making team meetings productive.

  1. Purpose of meetings and why meetings are ineffective
  2. How to make decision and solve problems together
