Do you conduct meetings as part of your job? Most of us do. It's a complicated effort that demands planning and attention. At the summer leadership workshop I presented a short program on this subject. You can find it on my seminar handout page. I hope it helps.
ISM has published their satellite seminar schedule for the year. http://www.ism.ws/AboutISM/MediaReleases/pr082202SatSems.cfm These programs are cost-effective and definitely worth attending.
