IU East Center for Leadership Development management series covers Facilitating Meetings for Results

September 14th, 2012

The IU East Center for Leadership Development is hosting a management workshop, “Facilitating Meetings for Results,” from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, September 19, in Hayes Hall Room 275.

Participants will explore a variety of tools and techniques for efficiently and effectively managing meetings and achieving intended meeting outcomes. Upon completing the course, participants will be able to distinguish between different types of meeting activities, describe the ingredients of an effective meeting, apply specific management tools to meetings for which they are responsible, recognize and respond to a variety of problem behaviors, and understand and apply the basics of group development.

This workshop will be facilitated by Fredricka Joyner, an associate professor of business administration and organization behavior in the IU East School of Business and Economics. She serves as the director of the IU East Center for Leadership Development and the Master of Science in Management Program. She is a well-grounded practitioner with 20 years of experience partnering with individuals, organizations, and communities to unleash potential and achieve new levels of performance. Each three-hour course in the management series focuses on key concepts, theories, models, tools, and their applications for effective workplace management. Participants can earn a certificate by completing at least five of the nine scheduled events.

“This session will provide immediate value for anyone who leads meetings,” Joyner said. “More than 25 million meetings are held every day in the United States with middle managers spending up to 50 percent of their work week in meetings. Yet, up to half of the time spent in meetings is viewed as unproductive. This course offers easy-to-implement tools and techniques to increase the effectiveness of time spent in meetings.”

Costs for the management series are:

$75 per individual attending a workshop
$50 per workshop for at least a three-person group from the same organization or business
$50 per workshop when an individual registers for at least five events. Visit the Center for Leadership Development for more details.
Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce members will receive a 10 percent discount.
