Too many meetings, never enough decisions. Badly-managed meetings are a waste of time, and often they just don't need to happen at all. If you have to chair or arrange meetings, this book will help you to make sure that they're useful and helpful exchanges of information rather than pointless shouting matches. Manage Meetings Positively offers practical solutions for many situations, including keeping the meeting on schedule, making sure decisions are reached, and dealing with conflict if tempers rise. Whatever your line of work, this book will help you make meetings more of a pleasure than a chore.
