Why This Book is Better
Than 2 Trips to Starbucks
#1) Improve Your Reputation
Meetings are a stage to show off your skills. It’s a place to shine. Expectations are low. You need only to run a well-planned, tightly-executed meeting, and your coworkers will take note. Do it a couple times, and soon your reputation as a skilled leader will spread.
#2) Mocking Meetings Doesn’t Make Them Better
It sure is fun to rip on meetings. Here’s one I saw the other day.
When we are all mocking and moaning, nobody is fixing the problem. Someone has to step up. Why not you?
#3) The Troublemakers Shouldn’t Win
Every meeting has them. Some slow you down. Others take you off track. A few leave you shaking in your shoes. The worst ones destroy your hope for a productive session. That’s not right. You need to stop this behavior from wrecking meetings, and this book will teach you how.
#4) You’re Not That Person, Right?
You know, the one who has meetings nobody wants to attend. If this is you, it’s time to admit it and commit to changing your ways. This book will be your guide.
#5) Your Boss Runs Lousy Meetings
This book helps you know what to do when someone else is running the show. Plus you can tell your boss that too many people in the company lead bad meetings (Not your boss, of course). You found this cool book, and suggest your boss might look good by recommending it to others. If you do that, you’ll not only be a meeting hero, you’ll be my hero too!
#6) Early Reviews Are Great
People like this book. It’s easy to read and filled with useful ideas. But don’t believe me. Us authors tend to fall in love with our own work. During the editing process, I would get to a part that I thought, “Wow, this is great. Who came up with this?” Then I remembered it was me. See what I mean? Read the reviews.
#7) It Lasts Longer Than Lunch
How often can you pick up a major work skill for less than the price of lunch? I’ve packed 20+ years and thousands of meeting’s worth of experience into this book. I guarantee you will learn something that you can apply in your next meeting. And if you can’t, well then, I guess I better take you to lunch so we can call it even.
#8) Workplaces Need More Heroes
For years I’ve done what I could. I made things better one meeting at a time. Now I want to make a bigger impact, and to do so, I need an army of meeting heroes, ready to join me in my efforts to wipe the scourge of bad meetings from the face of the earth.
What Are You Waiting For?
There’s plenty to do. You can watch from the sidelines or jump in and go to work. Arm yourself with everything you need to plan and lead engaging, productive meetings. Let’s go get ’em.
