The Planner for Successful Meetings

The Planner for Successful Meetings.

A planner and questionnaire to identify the five meeting missteps that might be undermining the success of your meetings, suggest ways of fixing them, and look at ways to increase your impact on meetings as well. Eight copies of the questionnaire are included so you can track one meeting over time or several for just one or two meetings.


The two parts of the questionnaire, first on the meeting and another on your participation, are completely separated so the first part can be collected by the team leader and used in confidence as a team development tool. Available in early 2024 on amazon!
