Boardman, Ohio (PRWEB) February 02, 2016 -- Meetings represent a huge investment in time and resources for businesses. In the United States alone, over 11 million meetings are held each day. The hope is that meetings will foster collaboration, productivity, and efficiency. The truth is that many meetings do just the opposite.
Forbes magazine estimates that nearly 33% of an employee’s time is spent in meetings. Of those meetings, nearly 34% are considered “unproductive” by participants. In a survey of 150 senior executives, they identified the top problems with meetings as:
• Disorganized meetings that lack focus
• People who interrupt their peers or dominate the conversation
• Disruptions from participants arriving late or leaving early
• Meetings not starting at the designated time
• No follow-through on action items
Sound familiar? For companies having trouble making the most of their meetings, PeopleKeys today announced their plans to offer a free webinar designed to help improve meeting efficiency and boost overall productivity in the office. The webinar called “How to Choose a Meeting Leader” will show participants how DISC behavioral analysis can be used to make meetings run more efficiently. The webinar will focus on how to:
• Ensure that the right people are assigned to the right tasks
• Improve communication and minimize disruptive behaviors
• Choose meeting leaders that are the best fit for a specific project or group
• Create a more positive and productive work environment.
The webinar will be led by PeopleKeys Master Trainer John Schindell. Of the webinar, Schindell said, “When we talk about talent management strategies, we typically talk about ways to use human resources within a company to increase efficiency and improve the bottom line. DISC gives us a unique set of strategies that work perfectly for talent management. DISC helps to see the individuals in a company as dynamic pieces of a larger puzzle. With DISC, people can more clearly understand each person’s unique communication style. This includes motivational triggers, leadership qualities, and bad habits. It even helps to predict the way that different combinations of personalities will interact. This is all information that is extremely valuable when collaborating in the workplace. It can help to ensure the success of teams, the efficiency of meetings, and the overall productivity of the group as a whole. DISC gives us a set of strategies that can be used to tap into the strengths and talents of the individuals within an organization.”
The “How to Choose a Meeting Leader” online training will air on February 12th at 2pm EST. The webinar will stream live at peoplekeys.com, and will be available on demand the following day. The “How to Choose a Meeting Leader” webinar will be presented as a part of PeopleKeys’ popular DISC for the Real World series, which includes monthly installments of interactive 60-minute DISC training sessions on a variety of topics.
