This book is just what I needed to jolt me out of my complacency regarding the meetings I have created and that I attend. It's an extremely easy read and immensely practical. As a result, I'm currently running all of my meetings through the decision-making matrix that Hyatt recommends within this book to evaluate what meetings are no longer needed, need tweaking, can be handled in a different format or maybe don't need me in attendance. I'm looking forward to the re-organizing of my time so that our whole business can function in a more value-added way.
Very insghtful and practical. I will not approach meetings the same way after reading this much-needed book.
While I expected something a bit longer, Michael calls out salient points regarding meetings. Good insights on the time wasted in meetings. Will re-read and triage my own meeting behaviors both as host and participation. Thanks, Michael!!!
I enjoyed having many tips presented in one place and practically. The world would be a dramatically better place with better meetings. I'm going to go do my part as a leader to step it up.
No Fail Meetings is an easy read and gets to the point. I love it! I may not be able to change the culture of my dept, but I can use the information to more effectively host meetings I am in charge of. Even better, cut out the meetings all together when an email or simple conversation will do. I highly recommend this book!
