Given the number of scientific publications on meetings, it seems that the time is ripe for using scientifically based training to develop the skills of meeting leaders. The purpose of this chapter is to outline such a training course developed on the basis of empirical studies, with the target group consisting of participants with managerial responsibility for leading meetings. The suggested two-day training course comprises five modules: Module 1: “Sensitization to and analysis of prevalent meeting culture,” Module 2: “Preparing meetings,” Module 3: “Communication skills for meeting leaders,” Module 4: “Techniques during the meeting,” and Module 5: “Monitoring resolutions and following up on action items.” For each module, we describe the scientific background and outline how this training component can be implemented. We also recommend adding a follow-up event to refresh participants' memory of the training to support its transfer to meeting practice.
