Klappentext

Meetings, the cornerstones of collaboration,inspiration, and progress, have suffered excruciating humiliation at the hands of corporate America. Gone are good agendas, participation, focus, and follow-up that are the lifeblood of great meetings. Instead, too many meetings drone on like some sort of soul-crushing, walking-dead zombie robbing workplaces of joy, productivity, and time. But there is good news: meetings can be saved . . .by you! Boring Meetings Suck empowers you to take charge of meetings that have become a waste of time and talent. Most books on meetings focus only on the person responsible for planning and hosting the meeting, but Boring Meetings Suck dares to admit what other authors avoid. Only when attendees learn how to diplomatically speak up and get meetings back on track will everyone benefit.
 
This book offers dozens of SuckificationReduction Devices, or SRDs, to make the next meeting you attend more efficient and effective. Learn which meetings you can skip and how to callout the perpetrators of poor meeting etiquette. But it's not enough to stop others' meetings from sucking; you must make sure your meeting doesn't suck. Learn how to become a better speaker by making eye contact, working the stage, and varying the speed of your speech. Get the essential elements for planning large meetings or conferences, and get new techniques that will help you run "get in, get it done, and get out" meetings. With Boring Meetings Suck, you'll learn:
* How to graciously excuse yourself from ameeting without losing your job
* The right ways to use PowerPoint (andother technologies) Three polite ways to motivate people towrap up
* Why you should turn your phone on inall meetings
* Tips to make your presentation powerful and not pointless
* How to be a meeting hero, and get people to show up on time, participate, and return to their desks happy and with extra time intheir pockets
 
When done right, meetings can rock. They can be vehicles for innovation, motivation, and decision-making. They can spark revolutions. They can save the world! All you have to do is not let themsuck, and this book shows you how.

Praise for Boring Meetings Suck
 
"Irreverent for certain (consider the title), but Jon has created an encyclopedia-like compendium of great ideas to make meetings more efficient and effective. Who cannot use more time and less ineffective meetings?"
--Larry Hilsheimer, President and Chief Operating Officer, Nationwide Direct & Customer Solutions
 
"This quick reference, easy read provides some great tips and guidelines to drive effective meetings."
--Craig O. Morrison, Chairman and CEO, Momentive Performance Materials Holdings LLC
 
"Finally, a book that addresses the IMPACT a meeting can have on its attendees and how that can affect the bottom line, rather than how the bottom line affects the attendees!"
--Chris Curry, President and CEO, Destinations by Design LLC
 
"Jon Petz is the global authority on audience engagement because he's spentfifteen years traveling the globe, engaging audiences. His book is the perfect resource for any organization that wants to reach the people who matter most, or for someone who simply wants to suck less"
--Scott Ginsberg, The Nametag Guy, author of The Approachable Leader
 
"If everyone would adopt the ideas for better meetings contained in this book, many businesses would be more productive. Bad meetings waste a lot of time and most business managers have never had any training on how to conduct an efficient meeting"
--Randy Wilcox, founder, SARCOM, Inc.
 
"Your first step to participate in the movement to eliminate boring meetings is to read this book and implement its ideas."
--Jim Canterucci, author of Personal Brilliance

Finally the real corporate efficiency drain uncovered 17. April 2011
Von Buckeye Bob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Talk all you want about competiting with foreign companies, the impact of the health care bill or how wall street gets away with murder, the real corporate robber of productivity is the meeting. Petz hits it out of the park! Reading this book reminded me of the dozens and dozens of bad meetings I wanted to forget. It should be "a must" read for anyone who really cares about getting more done in less time. While it is a good read from beginning to end, I plan to use the book as a reference guide as I call or am called to a meeting. Lots and lots of good stuff. It is already on the shelf next to my desk with the other guides I use on a continuing basis. I only hope Petz tackles the next drain on American business... sucky presentations.

Great Suggestions! 6. Juni 2011
Von Tad - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a wonderful resource for anyone who runs or attends meetings. It is relevant, full of great ideas, and fun! I can't believe how many of the author's examples come up in our meetings everyday. I think I've just grown to accept the fact that I will lose time attending these meetings. Now, thanks to the author's suggestions, I see that there are things that I can do to minimize that lost time.

Stop The Meeting Now! 5. Juni 2012
Von connywithay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As most of us know, business meetings of any kind are generally boring, mundane and virtually unnecessary. In motivational keynote speaker Jon Petz's book "Boring Meetings Suck," there are easy ways to reverse those attitudes by his "get it, get it done and get out" application mantra.

This two hundred and twenty page hard cover book has red and black doodles of scribbled titled words on lined paper on the front jacket with six reviews on the back and book descriptions in the inserts including an author biography. In addition to contents and forward pages, there are acknowledgments, about the author and index pages. There were no noticeable grammatical or typographical errors.

In his book, Petz drives the point home that too much time and effort is wasted in company meetings, conference calls, webinars and even group brain-storming. He blames it not only on the person running the meeting but also the attendants. He cajoles, mocks and begs for all participants to realize the utter waste in these unproductive meetings and to either stop doing them or make them more interesting. He provides simple answers to making them exciting, purposeful and entertaining.

He touts that cell phones should be turned on, games played to promote participation for individual and group interactions, white boards used and everyone be on the clock for starting and ending the meetings. He comes up with innovative ways for not only the facilitator but the attendee to accept their responsibilities in every meeting they attend.

Gone are the days of overdone PowerPoint with read aloud, following the words productions or cutesy animated artwork. It gets down to the nitty-gritty of actually accomplishing something during a meeting by suggesting whomever comes in last takes notes (thus the paper is passed on as the next person enters the room), removing all chairs in the room so everyone has to stand and think at the same time and promoting polling through social media. He also includes several helpful and informative websites for further references.

It is an excellent resource for the person heading the meeting as it gives detailed instructions and recommendations on how to have a successful, meaningful, productive meeting, and attendees are challenged to learn how to change the meeting's dynamics, give constructive criticism and even leave the room if necessary.

The book is recommended to be given to all upcoming and seasoned sales managers, set-in-their-ways business owners and even small group speakers along with anyone who has to attend such boring events and need viable resources to get out of them.

Name a Problem be the Solution 24. Mai 2011
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What Jon brings to the stage and the page is his ALL. Jon's take on a quiet epidemic is useful, funny, insightful and a fresh take on an old topic. I enjoy the challenges and solution that come from a state certified optimist in an often fickle world.
I utilize several of the activities with the you women and men I work with and when I happen to have the book with me and I set it down there is always (yep always) someone who spies "Boring Meetings Suck" who laughs or grins with a "that is so true" remark)

You Said It! 24. Juli 2011
Von Shawn Binsley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book highlights the problem with corporate America. As a person that spends most of my time in meeting on a daily basis I can certainly understand where this book is coming from. Someone should track how much money poorly run & needless meetings cost companies on a daily basis. This book is straight to the point and speaks the truth with a nice touch of humor. I wish everyone would take note and follow the principles in Jon's book. Everyone will uncover a few principles that they will find relevant to their company or situation.
