Course features

Famous faces including John Cleese, Caroline Quentin and Danny John Jules will show you how to deal with people in meetings. A manager dreams he is in court, charged with neglecting the human aspect of his meetings. As he learns from his errors – failing to prevent a squabble, allowing the discussion to go off at a tangent and letting himself be railroaded into a poor decision – the course explores new techniques to get people working together during meetings.

Set in everyday surroundings, well-known performers act out realistic situations in a light hearted and entertaining way that will help you recognise some common errors and understand how to correct them. The familiar settings and witty role play will help you to apply the material to your own workplace.

Before you begin you’ll take a short test to help identify any knowledge gaps. As you work through the course you’ll be presented with simple exercises to check your learning.

You can start the course straight away and access it at any time, providing you have the use of a computer with an internet connection. The course is available for six months from the date first accessed.
