IN THIS SUMMARY

Most employees—and many leaders—view meetings as an enemy to productivity and a complete waste of time. They are usually boring, repetitive, and many times attendees have no idea why their presence is required. People are often unable to achieve consensus, and attendees leave with no clear action plan or next steps. To add insult to injury, meeting attendees often endure grueling and time-consuming decision-making processes, only to discover later that all decisions were predetermined before the meeting. In Let’s Stop Meeting Like This, Dick and Emily Axelrod present a new way of planning and conducting meetings that clearly defines meeting objectives, engages attendees, and results in accomplished tasks and completed projects. Their Meeting Canoe approach is a simple meeting model that includes all of the steps required to make meetings more productive.
