The boardroom where the business happens and if you can't participate in the boardroom then you are missing out, and you are limiting your professional potential! Professional speaker and creator of Robert’s Rules Made Simple, Susan Leahy MA, has experienced first hand the benefit of knowing how to use Robert’s Rules of Order to run great meetings. She started using Robert’s Rules when she was just 13 years old as a member of FFA (Future Farmers of America). Back then Susan had no idea why she was learning Robert’s but looking back she now sees how it was an essential tool that gave her confidence to speak up during any meeting, and which ultimately helped her get elected multiple times.
Meetings are a way of life, and if you can learn the language of meetings you will be able to command a room, be more efficient and impress the people you work with. Once you understand Robert’s Rules formally you can use it informally to run any meeting! Robert’s Rules of Order is an amazing communication and team building tool.
