HBR Guide to Making Every Meeting Matter Ebook + Tools
Harvard Business Review

Are your days full of rambling back-to-back meetings with no time to think? Do you wish you could leave conference rooms with solid decisions and action items that were clear to you and your colleagues? Too many companies have a meeting culture where participants come unprepared for meaningful discussion, surreptitiously check their mobile devices rather than contribute, or get pulled into contentious arguments immaterial to the topic of the meeting. The HBR Guide to Making Every Meeting Matter + Tools will equip you with the checklists, templates, and scripts you need to transform your meetings into productive conversations that lead to action in the days and weeks that follow.
