Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Stephen Haunts. Welcome to my course, Creating a Healthy Meeting Policy in Organizations. As an employee or manager, meetings are fundamental to a company's success in realizing its goals. Having a meeting policy that documents the rules for a meeting and gives guidance is an essential tool to helping a company succeed. We're about to define meeting policy. Meetings can quickly become chaotic and disorganized. In this course, we'll look at what a meeting policy is and why it is important, the downsides of not having a defined policy, how a company culture influences a meeting culture, how to approach changing a meeting culture, and we'll look for an example of the meeting policy document that you can use as the basis for your own policy. And finally, we'll talk about how best to train people on the contents of that policy. The overall aim of this course is to help you define and write a meeting policy document for your organization. This course is aimed at anyone who has been set the task of defining their company meeting policy. Even if you're not writing the policy directly yourself, this course will be an invaluable resource on how to conduct an effective meeting that helps your company or team achieve their goals and also respects everyone's time. If you find this course useful, you may also find my course How to Run Effective Meetings an invaluable resource on running meetings. If you are a manager, then that would be a very good course to train your people on running great meetings. I hope you'll join me, Stephen Haunts, on this journey to learn about defining meeting policies with my course, Creating a Healthy Meeting Policy in Organizations here, at Pluralsight.
