Shelter employees attend a lot of meetings. While meetings are vital to an organization's communication, coordination and decision-making, employee frustration with them is high. Thankfully, there's a new meeting science that brings innovative solutions to the meeting "problem." This webcast delves into the research leading to an evidence-based path that will help you conduct a more productive meeting and allow shelter teams to realize the true potential of these gatherings. This is for anyone who leads or will lead meetings in the future.
What you'll learn:
- What is known about meetings from an evidence-based perspective
- How to effectively lead meetings to promote efficiency and innovation grounded in science
- The in-depth research - much of which was conducted in animal shelters - that formed the basis of Dr. Rogelberg's new book, "The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead Your Team to Peak Performance"
This webcast has been pre-approved for 1 hour of Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
