The Surprising Science of Meetings
A recent estimate suggests that employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States. Even though essential to shelter communication, coordination, and decision making, employee frustration with meetings is just so high. How can your shelter use meetings and help save company time and engage your staff? In this session, you’ll gain key learnings and implications for organizational and team success:
• How to transform your organization and team with innovative meeting practices and processes
• How your team or organization can realize the true potential of a meeting
• How company leaders are uniquely positioned to leverage this work and lead their team to peak performance
This 65-minute keynote is one of four recordings filmed at The Association's Fall 2019 Conference in Houston. The conference was proudly sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, ASPCA, IDEXX, Maddie’s Fund, PetSmart Charities, and RKD Group.
