Managing Task Forces, Committees and Work Groups:

How to Get a Reputation as a Good Leader

Running a small group is an important undertaking, and leaders have a challenging role to play in coordinating meeting strategies. Leaders must learn to manage their groups effectively and efficiently to encourage the future success of organizational initiatives. Effective meetings allow groups to get the work done, while efficient meetings avoid wasting the valuable time of members. This course will not only teach you how to do both of these things, it will provide practical insights into clarifying roles, communicating with members, listening and synthesizing information, disclosing conflicts of interest, and coming to group consensus. Consequently, it will also teach you the skills you need to get a reputation as a good group leader.

 Topics in this course include:

  • Maintaining a clear focus on group members roles, goals and outcomes
  • Dealing with conflicts of interest and other disruptive behaviors
  • How to communicate effectively in a group and move from discussion to decision
  • Behaviors to model as a good group leader and using those to get a good reputation

Course Objectives:

  • Recognize the need to maintain a clear focus on the reasons for establishing a task force, committee, or project team
  • Identify the roles, responsibilities and expectations of task force members and of the Chair
  • Outline a clear process for engaging others in making contributions and decision-making toward the group’s goals
  • Describe strategies for conducting effective and efficient task force meetings and calls
  • Establish an intentional plan for communicating with task force members before, during and after group meetings
  • Identify examples of ineffective group process and their consequences
