The proven process for making the most of every business meeting?from the coauthor of the international bestseller Dealing with People You Can?t Stand

In the U.S., an estimated 25 million meetings occur daily; some calculations put the cost of unproductive meetings at more than $37 billion per year.
Dealing with Meetings You Can?t Stand is the necessary antidote to one of the biggest banes and drains on business today. It will help you run efficient, productive meetings every time by solving problems related to the most important issues: preparation, people, process, and time.

Providing key insight into the human behaviors that lead to unsuccessful meetings, along with psychology-based tactics for addressing them, Dr. Rick Brinkman teaches you how to start and end every meeting on time, develop and execute an effective agenda, address disruptive behavior, balance participation, and eliminate the problem of overlapping meetings. This practical and easily implementable method applies to in-person as well as virtual meetings of any size. The book includes checklists, forms, and charts to help you stay on track.

You need not suffer in a meeting ever again.
