The proven process for making the most of every business meeting--from the coauthor of the international bestseller Dealing with People You Can't Stand

From Dr. Rick Brinkman, one of the bestselling masterminds who made Dealing with People You Can't Stand a little less painful--and a lot more productive--comes the much-needed cure for that time-wasting, headache-inducing, soul-sucking plague known as meetings. This proven step-by-step method addresses the most common problems that derail a meeting: preparation, people, process, and time.

Dr. Brinkman provides key insights into the human behaviors that lead to unsuccessful meetings, along with psychologically-based tactics for addressing them. You will learn how to:

* get rid of unnecessary meetings
* start and end on time
* develop and execute an effective agenda
* address disruptive and problem behaviors
* balance participation so assertive people don't dominate and passive people say what they really think
* eliminate tangents and maintain focus
* ensure effective follow-up

This practical and easily implementable process applies to in-person as well as virtual meetings of any size. Filled with helpful checklists and change-making strategies, Dealing with Meetings You Can't Stand will turn the most boring conference room into a fast-moving model of efficiency, energy, and enthusiasm. You need not suffer in a meeting ever again.
