Have you ever sat through a pointless meeting and calculated just how much money was being wasted as a dozen of well paid professionals zoned out around a deathly boring conference table? This unfortunately has happened to many of us, but it doesn’t need to continue. There is such a thing as a focused, productive, participative, and even fun meeting.
Surveys of executives as well as managers found that over 50% of meetings they attend are a waste of time. And with most attending 61 meetings per month, that means that over 30 meetings are just a complete waste of money. But just how much do meetings cost? By analyzing the real cost of meetings — from the hard travel costs to productivity costs — you are in for a startling revelation. What is it costing you?
Due to the increased pressure to reduce corporate expenses and the changing dynamics of today’s work force, it’s time for business to take a look on how to make meetings work – to be effective and productive and cost-effective.
why should you attend
Ask managers what part of their job they find most taxing and tedious and the answer is sure to come in a loud and unanimous voice – Meetings. Too many, too often with too few results. Nothing seemed to get accomplished; the agenda was unclear; people were late…or didn’t even show up.
Let’s face it. Meetings have a bad reputation; They are time wasters. The best you can hope for is to get through them. Right? It doesn’t have to be that way. If the meetings you manage are not working, you can fix them. But only if you understand what it takes to make a meeting work. Learn how to lead meetings that are focused, productive, participative, and even fun!Click to View the Pricing Plan
How many meetings did you have this week? And how many of them were amazing experiences? The real truth is that while we love to meet — at football games, restaurants and movie theaters — we absolutely hate meetings. Why?
Because most business meetings are a waste of time. Yet, meetings are a crucial tool for driving high-growth and high-impact organizations. Unfortunately very few managers run successful meetings. Productive, valuable, and engaging meetings require a clear goal, an open dialog, and a strong leader.
This webinar enables leaders to improve meeting productivity, to get wider input, to enhance communication and to boost creativity and teamwork activities. The four areas to be covered are:
- The Cost of Ineffective Meetings
- The 3 Stages: Preparation, Leadership, Close
- 4 Tools to Keep Discussions and Meetings On Track
- How to Handle the Seven Types of Problem People
- Identify meeting management problems
- Ask six key questions before calling a meeting
- Review three techniques to lead effective meetings
- Encourage participation and different points of view
- Manage problem behaviors– the latecomer, the talker, the busybody, the wanderer, the arguer

Thank you for the spreadsheet webinar. The webinar was informative and helpful. Although many of the concepts are known and understood by Industrial and Process Engineers, it is always helpful to have a straightforward review. The spreadsheet will be beneficial in being able to help identify areas of risk and areas that may require some attention.

This was a very informative session, it did help my company by raising awareness in areas we lack policies. The only thing I would suggest get added to the session is direct information relating to Accounting, ex. Taxation rules for record retention as they are some records which a company is required to keep indefinitely.

Overall I found the video conference well organized and very informative. The presenter, Ronald Adler, was certainly extremely knowledgeable and presented the subject matter in a well organized, direct and succinct manner. Afford the attendee the ability to track and record paid attendance/activity without a lot of tracking and follow up in order to gather the necessary information required to record the CPEs earned and paid for.

As this was our first experience, we did not know what to expect. I believe the webinar was informative and to the point, and explained to us the purpose of the I-9, and how the company can be affected by an audit. It really motivated us to review our files and bring them up to date.
