Leader’s Edge (Leadership)
The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead Your Team to Peak Performance
Steven G. Rogelberg
Oxford University Press, 2018, 194 pages
Every organization, church, ministry or other coordinated activity requires meetings. Rogelberg looks at this important topic with an aim toward providing actionable, researched recommendations on how to make meetings produce desired results. The book covers one major meeting topic per chapter and includes a short summary “takeaways” section. There are two main sections to the book. The first focuses on meeting setup and the second looks at how to execute a meeting. The final chapter addresses virtual meetings. All chapters, except the final one, are laced with research that support the author’s contentions.
