Practical Skills in Active Listening and Note-Taking


Meetings are an important part of the group decision-making process. With todays flatter, less hierarchical organizations, one week you could be asked to chair a meeting and the next week to record the minutes. Minutes are a record of the group’s decisions and action items and it is vital that they are clear, concise and accurate. This seminar helps participants to understand the full range of their role and responsibilities as Minute Takers, to work effectively with the Chair and to produce agendas and minutes in a variety of styles formal, informal and action.

Workshop participants will take part in a mock meeting to gain a practical understanding of the roles of Chair and Minute Taker, to practice taking accurate notes and producing correct minutes. Active learning takes place in a relaxed and fun environment.

Course participants will be encouraged to summarize their key learning points and prepare a short action plan to implement on their return to work.

An open enrollment session allows you to learn and grow with people from different organizations.
Open to all members of the public.
