Struggle with Boring Meetings?...Author gives advice in new book.
Most of the millions of meetings held in the U.S. every day are an unforgiveable waste of time and talent. John Petz, a former corporate executive and current corporate entertainer has keynoted meetings for Wal-Mart, Honda, Deloitte, and AT&T, among others. His new book, Boring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings, or Get Out of More Meetings (April 2011) dares to admit what other authors avoid. Petz introduces a contrarian notion that meeting hosts should capitalize on technology use during meetings versus curtail it. Instead of telling people to turn off their digital devices, Petz suggests participants use devices for instant crowd sourcing and rapid dissemination of information to those affected by the decisions and innovative note taking so important information is not lost.
In Boring Meetings Suck, Petz focuses on how attendees can take charge of meetings. Only when attendees are empowered to diplomatically speak up and get meetings back on track will everyone benefit, instead of suffer in silence as an ineffective host loses control. This book offers dozens of SRD's "Suckification Reduction Devices" to help readers make their next meeting efficient and effective.
