August B Learning Lunch: Creating Effective Meetings for Better Results

  • Ecotrust - Billy Frank Jr Conference Center (2nd Floor) Portland, OR United States (map)

Join us on Thursday, August 22 for August's B Learning Lunch, brought to you by B Local PDX and hosted at the Ecotrust Billy Frank room. Suzanna Coffman of Trebuchet Group will discuss “Creating Effective Meetings for Better Results.”

Did you miss our on last month’s sold-out event on Harnessing (Healthy) Conflict for Better Results? Our July lunch was so popular that we’ve invited Suzanne back for round 2 of learning around building a healthy workplace team environment!

Many of us have recently sat in a meeting that was unproductive and energy draining. When meetings are attended with dread and low expectations it is unlikely that true collaboration and good outcomes will come from them. How can you design meetings that energize the team and bring you closer to achieving desired outcomes? In this session, Suzanne will explore the following key elements of effective meetings:

  • Meeting rituals that create connection and focus

  • Outcome based thinking, design with the end in mind

  • Encouraging healthy conflict

  • Getting commitment
