Making meetings successful through active participation

Seminar language: German

From Sabine Walter

Meetings take up a very large part of everyday working life. Very few of them are productive and achieve the desired result in the allotted time. This is also due to the fact that they are poorly prepared and inadequately managed.

In this online seminar, we deliberately take the perspective of the participants and teach them how they can achieve constructive meetings through specific leading questions and convincing contributions.

Seminar description "Making meetings successful through active participation".

  • "I received concrete tips on how I can increase my presence in meetings, even if I am not the meeting leader or expert on the subject."
  • "The trainer made us all actively cooperate and lured us charmingly out of our comfort zone. The training was fun."
  • "Well done! Small group, practical content, lots of exercises. In addition, the Trainer responded very flexibly to our questions and concerns. I recommend the seminar to anyone who is annoyed by unproductive meetings, but don't know what they can change."
