It seems these days that everyone hates meetings. How many times have you heard someone say, “We have too many meetings,” or “I am booked so solid every day in meetings I never have time to get anything done,” or “I’m back-to-back…”
But when you talk to people, it isn’t that they hate meetings; it’s that they don’t like meetings in which nothing gets done. No one is sure why the meeting was called, or why half the people are in the room, or what exactly is supposed to get done, or what was decided. We complain about meetings, but we seem to attend more and more of them.
Meritas co-founder Dick Massimilian has attended and led thousands of meetings and presentations, and shares his team, organizational and leadership expertise in his latest book, How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want). In this book, you’ll learn effective strategies for ensuring that your meetings are effective and efficient, from planning and scheduling, to running your meeting, to post-meeting follow-through.
Available in hardcover format, How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want) will show you how to ensure that your meetings get results, whether you’re a C-level executive, manager, or entrepreneur.
