Join us on October 5, 2017 from 8-9:30 am at the Philanthropy Center (425 Cedar Street, Waterloo; 3rd floor US Bank Bldg.).
How does your nonprofit achieve its mission? Search your calendar for the answer and you will likely find that “go to meetings” is our sector’s preferred mode of operation. As nonprofits, we use meetings to align goals, make decisions, solve problems and generally – get stuff done! But, poorly designed meetings eat up time, make us desperate for the “real work” at our desk, and drive our teams apart.
As leaders we have the opportunity to design better meetings; meetings that strengthen organizations and relationships and help meet our goals. During this session we’ll explore the ways that meetings go wrong and investigate the art and science of meeting design. You’ll learn the architecture of exceptional meetings and you’ll have a chance to consider new meeting designs.
