    The title may make you laugh but it is so true I have worked for organizations that have meetings to plan their next meetings We all know the feeling of never ending meetings and meeting with no direction or substance The author defines the keys and steps for anyone to define effective meetings that everyone would appreciate In fact as a leader if you follow the author's process you will be known for running effective meetings and your staff will appreciate you for it

    If you are a part of a team coach or player you’ll probably end up in a meeting If you do this short read will probably help you get out of those meetingsNot a page turner but a good resource

    I think my team needs to read this book Not so much because our meetings suck per se but there's some nice little points about growth being heard transparency and accountability that all would have a place to land though if I could just ensure fertile ground for those pointsEven some of the meeting types that didn't sound relevant to my academic not corporate setting still offered some ideas that resonated at least personally Eg I don't do budgets but I'd like to know about what's going on there so I appreciated the author's calls for transparency The longer term strategy meetings also seem like an excellent call let's see minus three monthsMayJune should be ours Wonder if I can get this book adopted to that end and others by that time The only time I'm skeptical of both on a personal and logistics level is the twice daily huddle Really? And just not feasible for us as a department with our schedules and obligations that all vary from day to day and week to week Maybe if just the FT librarians huddle but there's only 2 3 of us and we're tight communication wise sooooo But that's fine Well and the weekly? one on one check ins which could be 30 60 min a pop I appreciate the concept and even his encouragement to make them sacrosanct in your schedule and not skipped or deferred but yow that's a lot Still take a concept alter to fitI also wish a few strategies were provided for getting the uiet members of a meeting to contribute especially as a meeting structure kind of strategy and not just leader shut up and let the group talk first so your authority doesn't smother We've got people who maybe agree with what's being said so don't feel inclined to speak up with even an agreed maybe head nodding though We've got people who are just timid and don't like a spotlight even in our small and familiar group and surely there's alternatives to forever saying person what do you think? But having clear agendas and outcomes pre meeting may help with that it's certainly a conclusion we eventually realized for ourselves being a horde of introverts but now need to steer our leader towards Skippingcancelling meetings is referred to as a slippery slope but no exploration was given I agree with that but would like commentary to chew on especially in contrast to meeting advice to just cancel if there's nothing for the agenda rather than waste everyone's time And in contrast to the encouragement for teams to be able to run meetings even if the boss or others can't attend Obviously an examination of why regular meetings regularly have unfulfilled agendas is an issue the team needs to solve and maybe that's a dysfunction beyond the scope of this book There's deeper roots to some issues in my world for which the meetings are just a symptomSo as business books go This one did not to my surprise suck

    I read this book thanks to BlinkistThe key message in this bookIt’s true what they say time is money especially in the corporate world So to make sure you’re not wasting people’s time and throwing money away meetings need to be both effective and efficient Holding regularly scheduled meetings is still the best way to communicate and get everyone on the same page But that’s not all – meetings can also improve employee skill sets strengthen teams and help build the very foundation of your company’s values and goalsActionable adviceIf an employee says they don’t want to attend a meeting respect thatYou should foster a culture where employees take the initiative to read the agenda and decide for themselves whether or not to attend a meeting Far from being lazy a well organized employee may realize that they cannot contribute anythingSuggested further reading Reinventing Organization by Frederic LalouxReinventing Organizations discusses why companies around the world are getting rid of bosses introducing flat hierarchies and pursuing purpose over profit And ultimately by adopting a non hierarchical model these organizations thrive

    Eye openerI have worked in the SR business for over 25 years The different hats I wear entitled me to constant communication either virtually or face to face it is uite surprising how little guidance and materials are out there that consolidate and put together a magnificent set of systems to run productive meetings as Cameron puts it in this bookHighly recommended it to leaders of all levelsThanks for the new window I was able to open with this great bookA Davila

Read this and get some pointers on what is important and why meetings need to be heldGives good advice on how to turn around meetings and a valuable read for anyone wanting to make meetings worthwile No agenda no attenda should be used by every person having to many meetings during the week The book comes with many recipes and examples but it needs to be adapted to your firmcorporationsystem as it is difficult to benchmark regarding corporate vs government systems


  7. Annette Fasone Annette Fasone says:

    Wish There Were More DetailsThis book definitely gives some good advice but old have used detail on how to fix common problems like keeping meeting members engaged and helping to make sure everyone feels comfortable speaking upThis book also doesn’t work for all companies I work for a creative agency and the types of meetings we have most freuently aren’t mentioned in this book at all If you work at a standard old school type company this will likely be helpful for you than it was for me


  8. Stacy Stacy says:

    Honestly didn't find it super useful at this point in my career Especially in an association This was clearly written from a guy who has been at C level for many years who wrote to those at those level And then decided to be like And the rest during the bookOnly inviting essential people asking why you are here and other practices he recommended are good advice and good to keep in mind I wouldn't read this without getting others at your work involved


  9. Adama Adama says:

    Good advices for beginners but won't help experienced managersIf you are a new leader struggling to find your way in how to handle the many meetings coming your way this book can help However if you are an experienced manager who have handled few meetings you would've come across most of the tools and techniues provided in the book
