Module 1:  Why are engaging meetings important?

Cohort 1: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Cohort 2: Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

Many of us spend a lot of time in meetings, and the quality of those meetings can dramatically impact the effectiveness of our work. We know we need to meet. Let’s figure out how to do this in a way that helps us meaningfully contribute to the work that’s in front of us. In this introductory webinar, Tim and Tuesday lay the groundwork for the importance of meetings and share a model that overviews a key dynamic that must be navigated to meet well.

Module 2:  How can we prepare and design a good meeting?

Cohort 1: Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Cohort 2: Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

Good meetings don’t happen by accident. We must take time to prepare them well. This webinar will focus what needs attention when preparing for a meeting—whether it’s a meeting of 60 minutes or 3 days. Participants will have the opportunity to share their own stories and ask questions about designing meetings, and Tim and Tuesday will share a map that they use each time they design a meeting to get results.

Module 3:  What are the essentials of leading a good meeting?

Cohort 1: Tuesday, October 9 , 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Cohort 2: Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

There is a lot to consider when leading a meeting, but this webinar supports our efforts by helping us notice a simple pattern that underlies all of our meetings. This pattern, or meeting architecture, provides another lens to help us better understand the meetings we lead. Tim and Tuesday will share this basic architecture and how we can use it with our own content to design meetings that are effective and take advantage of the natural pattern of how people meet.

Module 4:  How are we applying what we're learning?

Cohort 1: Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Cohort 2: Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

Practicing new skills in real-life situations allows us to identify what we’re learning and what else we need to know. In this session, participants will report in on homework from the previous session and share their learning from designing and leading their own meeting. Tim and Tuesday will devote time to identifying and supporting folks to integrate lessons learned and give feedback to prepare participants for their future meetings.

Module 5:  How do we embed a culture of good meetings?

Cohort 1: Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Cohort 2: Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

This is just how we do things around here: Good meetings become even more effective when they are held within a culture of meeting well. This session will focus on understanding a model about how you might shift culture through the lens of good meetings. Through the model, Tim and Tuesday will share the levels of impact you might expect from meetings, the key elements to consider, and a basic process you can move through in design and delivery of meetings.
