How to Hold a Decision-Making Meeting (That Actually Ends with a Decision)

Price: $149



Boost Productivity AND Eliminate Time-Wasting Meetings!

When a meeting that is supposed to conclude with a decision, doesn't, it halts progress, frustrates attendees, and kills urgency. That's why as meeting leader, it's crucial you anticipate and manage the inevitable disagreement, anxiety, and stalling which prevent group decisions from being made.

This 90-minute webinar combines insights from psychology, behavioral economics, and management to provide you with a powerful new framework for preparing, organizing, and leading your decision-making meetings in a way that ensures attendees leave with a decision and a sense of accomplishment.


We have 1 webinar(s) available starting between 4/4/2013 - 4/4/2013
