Think meetings kill productivity? This book invites you to think again by introducing a new way to meet that brings people together for productive cross-functional and cross-generational collaboration. The authors, leading consultants Dick and Emily Axelrod, have field-tested this approach for thirty years, and they offer a flexible, repeatable process that's helped get real work done in thousands of meetings across all sorts of organizations. Its many users will never go back. Neither will you.
In connection with the launch of Let's Stop Meeting Like This, The Axelrod Group will be donating a portion of book royalties to support The Dreamcatcher Foundation, an organization that helps rescue sex trafficked girls. Sex trafficking is a 3 billion-dollar business and the average age of victims is 11.
Our hope is to help these women and children as much as possible. Your purchase of Let's Stop Meeting Like This will make a difference in the fight against human trafficking.
The Axelrod Group invites you to join our community and receive copies of our newsletter and and other useful information. As a token of our appreciation we offer you a free copy of our ebook, How to Get People to Care About What You Find Important.
