Darrell is thoroughly engaging and always intriguing throughout this course. I really enjoyed listening to the energy and passion he has on this subject. He takes you through the stages of preparing, setting the stage, and then facilitating a meeting. He covers meeting pitfalls and helpful tips to keep a meeting on par. His coverage of “nightmare participants” is comical, but definitely a reality we all need to be aware of in the typical meeting audience.

The facilitation tips will be tools that I use actively going forward. With the Covid pandemic changing the way meetings are conducted by way of Zoom, teams etc, it is important to hone up on ones meeting facilitation skills, even when meeting remotely.

Set of informative tips to lead an effective meeting - although it was fairly traditional and did not address multi-cultural leadership/concerns.
