It is now exactly one month until I am planning to release the book. The first three chapters are finished and sent to some amazing people that wanted to review it. I have already received some fantastic feedback, and the book is so much better for it.
I have also written a draft synopsis for the book. Writing it helped me refine the structure of the book and get back on track with what I am trying to accomplish.
One of the most difficult things for organizations is to solve problems collaboratively. People spend too much time trying to solve problems by themselves, sit quietly in meetings, or push their ideas onto others. It is first when we gather people and help them think together that they can start solving the critical and often very complex problems that face our organizations and our world.
This book is not about making your meetings more efficient or helping you have fewer meetings. It is about creating meetings where people feel focused, involved, open, and creative.
The book will give you simple tips and deeper ideas on how to solve problems together by
- Planning and preparing to reach your goal.
- Starting meetings with a common goal.
- Creating a collaborative mindset.
- Improving creativity and involving everyone by visualizing the problem.
- Getting clear outputs and decisions.
