A bad meeting is a function of its leader.
The book is a fable, but it features a lot of very plain speech just like that. Are you worried that your meetings are boring and unproductive? Or are you coaching or mentoring someone with this problem? Then this is a good book to use to begin your work on the important skill of leading a meeting. It’s a quick read and easily relatable.
If you or your colleagues are like most workers, you’re spending 25 percent of your time in meetings. It’s crucial that these accomplish business-related goals. If a meeting is relevant, interactive, and engaging it will address critical issues, welcome healthy conflict, and end with resolutions and results. The second part of this book offers concrete recommendations for creating just this type of meeting.
