Meetings Don’t Have to Be Maddening

Every team needs meetings to stay on track. But meetings are often painful, unstructured, and inefficient. They waste time, slow progress and … lead to more meetings!

With simple steps, your teams can make dramatic improvements to meetings and begin to change the status quo.

How It Works

A BRIEF Meeting workshop is designed for 10-20 people and is delivered in person or online.

An in-person workshop takes place over two days, typically at the BRIEF Lab in Southern Pines, NC

The online live course takes place over four 2.5-hour sessions delivered via Zoom.

A BRIEF Lab instructor leads each session, and the course includes small breakout exercises, practical applications, and copies of BRIEF worksheets and tools.

After each session, everyone receives a link to individual assignments in our BRIEFbridge online classroom
