Course Description: This course will show the positive effect of shifting the traditional role of planner and evaluator from the leader to a shared responsibility between leader and employee.  This shift builds employee ownership, and allows the leader to focus on coaching and developing throughout the performance cycle.  Leaders will experience how to use effective (SMART) goals to help them and their employees track progress and fairly evaluate outcomes. A well-written performance plan is also a powerful tool for leaders to use when determining where to focus their development and coaching discussions with their employees.

Course Description: To achieve business results, organizations rely on people getting together to agree on ideas to implement, processes to adopt, and actions to take. These "gatherings" can be as simple as two people holding a conversation in a hallway or as complex as a video-conference involving many people in various sites. These diverse types of gatherings are really one type of thing: a meeting.

This course explores the key role the meeting leader has in ensuring that every meeting he or she conducts achieves its own business purpose. To do that, the course opens with a video that shows what can happen when a meeting leader doesn't plan well and fails to control the meeting process. The course proposes a standard meaning for the word "meeting," gives learners a chance to rate their own recent meetings, and walks them through the key actions for successfully and effectively planning, facilitating, and following up on their meetings.
