READ THIS BEFORE OUR NEXT MEETING - How We Can Get More Done

 SYNOPSIS | 

The average American office worker spends eleven hours in meetings every week. Yet all that time sitting around a conference table hasn’t made us more productive. If anything, meetings have made work worse.

Traditional meetings reduce efficiency, kill urgency, and breed compromise and complacency. Worst of all, our dysfunctional meeting culture changes how we focus, what we focus on, and what decisions we make.

Read This Before Our Next Meeting is the call to action you (and your boss) need.
