Too much valuable time is wasted in meetings. Often little advance planning takes place, resulting in productivity drains rather than productivity gains. It's time to think like a Ninja.
With realistic and practical advice this book shows how to reduce the amount of time you spend in meetings and ensure that the ones that you do attend are genuine opportunities to collaborate and get things done. Learn how to hold and attend meetings where the focus is on the outcome; get to grips with the 40–20–40 Continuum, so that only 20 per cent of your attention for each meeting is spent in the meeting itself – the rest is in the preparation and the follow-through; and understand when it's necessary to say that you won't be attending – and how best to do so.
