This One Page Coach® title can help you to make your meetings more effective and productive. A good way to think about the successful running of meetings is to use the PREPARE, OPEN, CONTROL and CLOSE learning cycle. The circles to the right describe each of the phases in the PREPARE (P), OPEN (O), CONTROL (C), and CLOSE (C) continuous improvement cycle.
