Building Efficient Meetings and Producing Effective Decisions: Achieve Twice as Much in Half the Time
March 16, 2023 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
This session shares results from the Meetings Masters/Decision Maestros Research Project intended to help social workers conduct more effective meetings. The first part of the session highlights practices from Meeting Masters, including the Menu Agenda, and the Agenda Bell. Principles of the Meeting Masters help social workers in the four phases of meeting - preplanning, facilitating/running the meeting itself, processing items for the next meeting, and follow up and implementation of decisions and actions. The second portion reviews several examples of "decision rottenosity" and outlines the process of decision crystallization.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
