Learn how to lead productive meetings that engage participants.

Given the state of health care: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, more meetings are being scheduled than ever before. The result is too many disengaging and unproductive meetings which squander precious time.

This Physician Leadership Institute course challenges assumptions about traditional meeting practices. You will be taught to use a rigorous model, framework and tools to help you design and develop effective meetings. You will also have opportunities to put your new skills to practice.


  • determine whether a meeting is the best way to share certain information, solve problems and make decisions;
  • set the stage for an effective meeting by identifying: context, goals, roles, processes and rules of engagement;
  • become a facilitation leader through “check-ins”, juggling meeting tasks and participant relationships, increasing active conversation and managing dysfunctional behaviours;
  • increase productivity with meeting tools;
  • use best practices to lead engaging virtual meetings;
  • reach a consensus using divergent and convergent thinking; and
  • complete an action plan for an upcoming meeting.

This course can be tailored and delivered* to physicians and/or interdisciplinary teams at your organization, meeting or conference. We’d be happy to work with you to find the right course for you and your organization. Please complete this brief questionnaire, and one of our learning specialists will get back to you to discuss options.

*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, courses will be delivered virtually until further notice.
