May 5, 2022—CEO Book Club: “The Surprising Science of Meetings”

Join us for the CEO Book Club on Thursday, May 5th at 12pm EST to discuss how better meetings can help you more effectively execute on your strategy—and hence help you grow your business faster and with less pain.

Do you complain about your meetings being boring or ineffective, and do you long for the end of them? Do you allow you/your people to skip them from time to time for “more important” work? Do you come out of a meeting, not quite sure what has been decided?

You are not the only one. A staggering 55 million meetings are held every day in the US alone, with only modest returns. Most companies and leaders view poor meetings as an inevitable cost of doing business.

But there is a better way: researchers now have a clear understanding of the key drivers that make meetings successful. In “The Surprising Science of Meeting” organizational science and psychology professor Steven Goldberg shares proven practices and techniques that help managers and employees enhance the quality of their meetings – and hence their business impact.

The author will join us during the conversation, which will make the experience even more insightful. The CEO Book Club is free and is open to all growth-minded CEOs who want to become better leaders.

When: Thursday 5/5 at noon EST

Where: on Zoom.

Who should attend: Business owners and CEOs who want to become better leaders so they can grow their business faster and with less pain.
