Running a small group is an important undertaking, and leaders have a challenging role to play in coordinating meeting strategies. Leaders must learn to manage their groups effectively and efficiently to encourage the future success of organizational initiatives. Effective meetings allow groups to get the work done, while efficient meetings avoid wasting the valuable time of members.

This course will not only teach you how to do both of these things, it will provide practical insights into clarifying roles, communicating with members, listening and synthesizing information, disclosing conflicts of interest, and coming to group consensus. Consequently, it will also teach you the skills you need to get a reputation as a good group leader.

Topics in this course include:

Maintaining a clear focus on group members roles, goals and outcomes
Dealing with conflicts of interest and other disruptive behaviors
How to communicate effectively in a group and move from discussion to decision
Behaviors to model as a good group leader and using those to get a good reputation
