Chairing and managing formal workplace meetings: skills for nurse leaders

Anne Harrington Freelance performance coach, academic studies; executive coach and mentor, management and leadership, Buckhurst Hill, Essex, England

Few nursing staff from band 6 and above receive formal training on how to chair and manage formal business meetings, which can be a challenging experience for novices and when participants fail to engage with the discussion. This article gives an overview of how to lead and manage effective meetings, focusing on process, content, managing conflict and how to engage participants fully. This will give meetings more purpose and ensure participants feel their time is being used efficiently. Learning how to conduct effective meetings will enhance the quality of team working and team effectiveness.
