Summary of The Manager's Guide to Effective Meetings
© 2002 McGraw-Hill
Imagine going to a meeting that is well organized, purposeful, conclusive and crisp. The best part is: you made it so.
This is a handy, short, to-the-point guide about how to conduct meetings. Much of what author Barbara J. Streibel says is common sense, but any manager charged with running meetings knows how quickly common sense goes out the window in that setting. The author covers all of the bases and provides a series of useful checklists to help harried managers meet more effectively and efficiently. Streibel also provides many helpful references to other books that discuss specific techniques and practices. While little here is wildly original, getAbstract.com finds that the author gives fresh, lucid and practical treatment to tried-and-true guidance.
In this summary, you will learn
- Everything you need to know about conducting meetings; and
- How to put that knowledge into practice.
