The effect of loss is quantifiable, the mental effect is destructive – a bad meeting is the biggest enemy of effective performance. It is highly important to understand when it is useful and when it is dangerous to have structural work meetings. Participants will also get to know the structure of effective meetings, the most modern methods for examining problems and will receive practical tools for handling difficult participants.
Meeting or workshop? What is the difference? What is the objective of our meeting? How long should it last? How often should we have them? Who should be invited for it? How should we handle the aggressive XY? What about the pedantic Z? How can we find out what is in the background of a problem? How can we involve colleagues more in finding and working out a solution?
THE UNPREPARED AND BADLY MANAGED MEETINGS that are not followed up well are considered to be poisonous both by impressions and its effects as well. Our program provides practical answers to the questions above and can be easily integrated, offering tools that can be effectively used for organizing both meetings and workshops.
By the end of the program participants will be able to Able to prepare and lead meetings that are more interesting and effective with less frustration.
Potential follow-up courses

"At the Hungarian Siemens group a Talent Program has been introduced with the utmost support from the top management.
We have selected Develor Consulting for the implementation of the first phase of the Talent program as a result of an open tendering process.
The first phase of the Talent program was complemented with a Development Center (DC) so that we would have further information - other than the result of the performance appraisal results - for the compilation of the individual developmental plans for our talents. The challenge for us and for Develor Consulting was not only to deliver a high quality DC, but it was also
- to define tasks that would measure their talents according to the global Siemens competence system,
- DC observers would be able to objectively evaluate the talents’ competences based on the noted behavior and the same criteria
- to have as much information as possible by the end of DC that can be utilized for the individual plans
The course designer group and consultants of Develor Consulting Ltd. provided an excellent system in assessing our talents. Both in the preparatory phase of tasks and in making Siemens competences measurable, and during the DC itself and in giving feedbacks they have been customer oriented, flexible and professional in carrying out their tasks.
They implemented a high quality diagnostics methodology, which provided a result that exceeded our expectations."Gabriella Juhász , Head of HR Functional Center Learning & Development, Talent Acquisition - SIEMENS

„During the year 2010 ING Pension funding organized a series of trainings for a part of its employees and agents. Our only partner in this project was Develor Bulgaria. ...
My impressions with Develor are from our joint work on the preparation of the program application documents, setting up training goals, their realization and the finalization of the project. Our initial expectations changed during the process of needs analysis. Our Develor partners extremely skilfully expanded our horizons and managed to mark specific areas where we should focus our efforts. Trainings were focused on practice and diversity of situational modules. They were delivered by three Develor trainers. Except for my excellent impressions by Todor Todorov, I can confirm my colleagues’ high appraisals for the other trainers.
We still discuss the Insights profiles which every participant received even a year after the training. I would like to express my high appraisal for the entire project and for [how they] managed to help us see more clearly our boundaries on specific elements which to put on their right place, and most of all for that today we have the knowledge how to manage our sales and expectations.”Elitsa Zancheva, Sales Manager - ING Pension
"Develor has carried out a training Finances for Non-financial Managers for our company. The training was based on everyday situations that our employees are coping with. It was focused on active practice using business simulation, where the participants could develop and practice the acquired theoretical knowledge and skills. I highly appreciate that the theory and practice was well balanced.
The performance of the trainer on the trainings mirrored his long time real life experience. This enabled him via a number of examples from practice to explain the presented issues more effectively. I highly appreciate the professional, flexible and quick work and approach of Develor that was supported by a deep understanding of the SkyEurope Airlines needs."Ladislav Matasovic, Learning & Development Manager - SkyEurope Airlines
