I shall from today:
1. Consider every meeting as my meeting
2. Have less meetings and more meeting
3. Understand the 7 basic reasons to meet and act accordingly
4. If I don't know why I am in a meeting, won't be in that meeting
5. If I can't improve a bad meeting, make it worse
6. When I am done, stop
7. If no one else is leading, I will
8. Understand the reasons for a bad meeting
9. Create value for all involved
10. Be bored no more
With hindsight its hilarious that the recommendations on the cover are by two people you hav'nt heard of and never will. What a surprise to find that they are included and lauded within the book itself : a kind of grotesque and questionable mutual back-slapping exercise.
Do not waste your time or money on this book - you can have mine and I will gladly pay the postage to get it out of my house
Note to self - do not listen to recommendations for 'best business book of the year' again
It's also (in my view) overly-focused on mechanics with too little to say about reading / influencing the human dynamics (power plays, level of engagement etc.)
So worth a read as a reminder of how to avoid falling into some bad habits but there's a better book to be written.
