Making a decision is relatively simple. However, bringing it to a finite conclusion is not so easy. The Dutch desire clarity and autonomy. What is equally important to them is to be heard during the decision making process. In this course you will learn how to lead inspiring meetings and make decisions, which are owned by everyone.
Work time, to a large extent, is meeting time. The involvement during the decision making process determines the effectiveness of the follow up of the decision. Yet, a growing number of people see meetings as compulsory. The energy is relatively low, point of views are already known and the decisions are predictable.
A large part of your time is spent in meetings, brain storming sessions and days away from the office. You want to spend this time effectively and efficiently, with attention given to both your interests and the interests of the other people. You want to lead as a chair, and at the same time, contribute as a participant. Your goal is to form active meetings with a clear process; meetings in which participants feel confident enough to share a different opinion and yet, commit to the decisions that have been taken.
At the end of this module you will:
Managers with extensive experience in leading people.
