Webinar Description: 

Were you ever taught how to conduct an effective business meeting? That’s right, most people haven’t. They practice what they experienced “growing up.” Building on Harold Lloyd’s emphasis on the importance of strong communications within your store, in this latest episode, Harold will explore the significance of the Most Important Hour of Your Work Week: the Weekly Department Manager Meeting. By addressing the best techniques and practices, Harold will give actionable ways you can turn your “yawner” of a meeting into a lively educational and informational experience for all involved every week!

What you can expect to get

  1. 18 Tips for an Effective Weekly Team Leaders’ (Department Manager) Meeting
  2. More confidence to lead your team. It’s difficult to be sure of yourself and your ability to conduct a meaningful meeting if you have never been properly coached. Here is your chance to be coached by a master!

As per Harold’s usual strategy, this 60 minute webinar will be in three parts:

  1. We will take a quick look back at the previous webinar to reinforce the most important strategies to increase your employees’ morale.
  2. Harold will then take us on an in-depth exploration of the most important hour of your work week and how to increase the success of weekly department manager meetings.
  3. Harold will close out the session by sharing his Favorite Fotos!

Webinar Objectives
