It was just okay A lot of the book stems from common business practices or other business books It doesnt add any revelations as to how to make meetings engaging other than involve the right people and dont waste their time. Great blueprint to properly run meetingsShort powerful read that every organization can learn from, just as Cameron says to run meetings, this book cuts out the fluff and gets right to it. Overall a good read and worth my time, although at times a bit dry and repetitive, and also a few weird writings, like a contradiction for why you can t have huddle meetings virtually and then 4 paragraphs after explaining about people who actually do. Solid strategies, Insightful tipsPractical, insightful tips on getting the most out of various types of meetings and how to utilize them to develop organizations and people Excellent read. I read this book thanks to Blinkist.The key message in this book It s true what they say time is money, especially in the corporate world So to make sure you re not wasting people s time and throwing money away, meetings need to be both effective and efficient Holding regularly scheduled meetings is still the best way to communicate and get everyone on the same page But that s not all meetings can also improve employee skill sets, strengthen teams and help build the very foundation of your company s values and goals.Actionable advice If an employee says they don t want to attend a meeting, respect that.You should foster a culture where employees take the initiative to read the agenda and decide for themselves whether or not to attend a meeting Far from being lazy, a well organized employee may realize that they cannot contribute anything.Suggested further reading Reinventing Organization by Frederic LalouxReinventing Organizations discusses why companies around the world are getting rid of bosses, introducing flat hierarchies and pursuing purpose over profit And ultimately, by adopting a non hierarchical model, these organizations thrive. Eye opener I have worked in the QSR business for over 25 years The different hats I wear entitled me to constant communication either virtually or face to face, it is quite surprising how little guidance and materials are out there that consolidate and put together a magnificent set of systems to run productive meetings as Cameron puts it in this book.Highly recommended it to leaders of all levels.Thanks for the new window I was able to open with this great book.A Davila
