Fixing Meetings (Paperback)
A Productivity Ninja Guide
Share this book
Too much valuable time is wasted in meetings. They often take place with little planning, effort or thought, and as a result, too many end up as a productivity drain rather than a productivity gain. It’s time to think like a Ninja.
The author of the bestselling How to be a Productivity Ninja, Graham Allcott, and productivity expert Hayley Watts want to start a meeting revolution. With realistic, practical advice they show how to reduce the amount of time you spend in meetings, and ensure that the ones that you do attend are genuine opportunities to collaborate and get things done.
Whether you’re an office junior or a CEO, learn how to hold meetings where you are focused on the outcome. Understand how to implement the 40-20-40 Continuum, so that only 20 per cent of your attention for each meeting is spent in the meeting itself – the rest is in the preparation and the follow-through; learn when it might be more appropriate to have a daily huddle, or do some desk hijacking, and when it’s necessary to say that you won’t be attending.
Break old habits, produce great results and make the most of your time.
