Please join us on Wednesday, January 16th for Metro’s first event of 2019! Dr. Steven Rogelberg will be delivering his talk, titled “The Surprising Science of Meetings: Implications for Organizational Success, Talent Management, and You as a Meeting Leader.”

Presentation Description

This highly interactive program brings a sharp and strategic light to an activity typically taken for granted – the meeting. A recent estimate suggests that employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States. Sadly, most meetings fail to engage us, or even worse, they blatantly disregard our time. There is now a meeting science that can bring learnings and solutions forward to solve the meeting “problem.” Namely, an exciting evidence-based path exists that can allow teams and organizations to realize the true potential of meeting. Leaders are uniquely positioned to leverage this work and to transform their organization and teams through innovative practices, metrics, and processes – all tied to meetings.

You will learn:

What we know about meetings from an evidence-based perspective. Dr. Rogelberg shares the research that formed the basis of his new book “The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead Your Team to Peak Performance” (Oxford).

The key role leaders, talent management, and HR professionals can have, through system and practices. This includes a discussion of a meeting metrics dashboard for leadership.

How to effectively lead meetings to promote effectiveness and innovation – as well as the ability to coach others around how to achieve these positive gains.
