That’s why we created our Meeting Management Customizable Courseware soft skills course. This course is a great way to help your employees or colleagues become better at leading efficient, productive meetings. Because it’s fully customizable, you can change the examples from sales or marketing related meetings to whatever type of meeting you want.

After completing this course, your employees will be able to:

  • Develop a SMART meeting objective—That stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timed
  • Prepare a comprehensive and realistic meeting agenda
  • Describe the elements of an effective meeting

This course includes knowledge checks like the one shown below that allows your learners to practice what they’ve learned. Here the learner identifies sample objectives as SMART or not SMART, based on the earlier information.
