Summary

Summary

This book tackles America's biggest office headache -- meetings. It gives you dozens of time-slashing, result-producing strategies that cover every aspect of business meetings and have been office-tested by some of America's top managers and executives. Tells you how to: avoid unnecessary meetings by offering alternative solutions; focus a meeting's objectives by defining your own goals; avoid time-consuming explanations by putting the details in a handout; get the decision makers on your side before the meeting; put an end to rambling debates by calling for "the vote"; and make sure people bring well-thought-out ideas to follow-up meetings.

Booklist Review

Frank's book is brief and to the point--just as, he argues, most meetings should be. A Beverly Hills-based communications consultant and lecturer, he offers tips on making meetings more productive. The two most important considerations are whether the meeting is even necessary in the first place and who should attend. He offers practical suggestions for various settings and includes advice for both those who conduct meetings and those who must attend them. A chapter is also devoted to video teleconferencing. If this book were required reading, national productivity would double! No index. --David Rouse
