Are You Tired of Leaving Your Meetings Wondering What People Are Really Saying about You and Your Leadership Skills?

From the desk of: Adele Sommers

Dear Colleague,

It's Friday afternoon, and you've been stuck in yet another meeting. Once again, it's gotten bogged down with annoying digressions. You've left the meeting feeling drained and irritated. You're wondering to yourself, “Does it really have to be this hard? Isn't there a simpler formula for making things work?”

Or, maybe you've heard these complaints about meetings — possibly even uttered some of them yourself about the ones you run or attend:

  • “They’re a total waste of time.”
  • “Half the time, I don’t even need to be there.”
  • “We never know ahead of time what they’re going to cover.”
  • “Some people distract every meeting with their side conversations.”
  • “You listen to folks who make a point, then they dominate the meeting.”
  • “We never get the information we need to make a good decision.”
  • “All the decisions are made before the meeting even starts.”
  • “No one ever follows up to be sure anything gets done.”

Sound familiar? Wouldn’t you like to find a way to change all of that? Whether you run staff, team, or client meetings — or attend the meetings that other people hold — you'll find this information of interest!

“No one ever has to feel victimized by bad meetings again — like I used to be even in some of my own!

Stephanie Frank“Adele has given step-by-step details on how all of the attendees, not just the leader, can take responsibility for making meetings work.

“I highly recommend Adele's Meeting Success Kit. Just from using the interactive ‘Meeting Cost Calculator’ on page 5, I can see that it will save our company at least $50,000 over the next year — just in preventing wasted meeting time alone!”

Too Many Meetings Are a Wasteland
of Unproductive Time!

Meeting fatigueI’ve worked professionally in many different fields and disciplines...but the one thing I have observed in nearly every environment is poorly run meetings. In earlier days, my colleagues and I used to hate going to meetings because they were so unplanned and chaotic!

You might be in a similar situation where meetings are called for no compelling reason. Or, you never hear about the meetings until just before they start. Afterward, you spend the rest of the day scrambling furiously to get back on track. Usually, no one bothers to send out an agenda or record meeting decisions for posterity.

And those are the “good parts”...
the meetings themselves drive everyone nuts!

For example, some people yak incessantly on the sidelines, distracting everyone else. One or two folks may jump on a soapbox and dominate the discussion. The meeting topics bounce back and forth so many times that no one knows what’s really being discussed.

And, if there’s a big decision to make, you could end up witnessing a long, heated argument, or the highest-ranking person might just issue a decree. But most of the time, nothing at all gets decided...and it’s simply a waste of time.

“Adele, thanks immensely for sharing
the Meeting Success Kit with me!

“Like the subject itself, the materials are highly focused and compelling! They also achieve that rarity: They can be read on several levels — serve as a primer for relative novices… with plenty there for more advanced professionals, too. At whatever level, lots of ways to take your information and run with it. And even for the most passive reader, there’s plenty that will stick.”

“The book brims with clarity, focus and immediate application. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of facilitative and guerilla techniques. It’s almost a Meetings-in-a-Box, with tips, tools and insights that can be used right now or as needed — along with ready-to-go templates and samples.

“And I appreciated the ample added value throughout: How to positively influence a meeting from the sidelines; key phrases guaranteed to keep meetings on track, on topic and on time; and some truly breakthrough brainstorming techniques. Best of all, it empowers everyone — whether you’re running the meeting or ‘just’ attending. It’s an engaging guide that, once read, makes you a more engaged meeting participant.

“For those jaded by meetings, it shows eye-opening opportunities; for those daunted by meetings, it suddenly all looks do-able – whether by small incremental steps or leaps and bounds.”

Here's a comment I received about the 8-Week Teleseminar Series:

“Over the years, I have created, produced and moderated a countless number of radio shows and teleseminars...

Greg Williams“In all of that time, I have not seen content presented so thoroughly as that presented by Dr. Adele Sommers. . . . The delivery and knowledge Adele possesses is top notch and top shelf. Her 8-week teleseminar series, 'Straight Talk on Boosting Business Performance,' was very informative, very enlightening, and very educational.

“Adele's presentation style is straightforward and delivered in a manner that allows listeners to 'get it.' If you are really serious about boosting the bottom line of a business you work in or own, you have to do yourself a favor and listen to Adele. When she speaks, people who are serious about business listen.”

“Adele, the first time I looked through
the ‘Meeting Success Kit,’ I immediately saw its potential
with our faculty meetings...

Jim Howland

“Tip #4 (‘Start the meeting on time and discuss the preliminaries’) has become my personal meeting mantra and my signature ‘procedure’ with colleagues. I used it the first time exactly as it appears in the Guide — and it worked.

At the second meeting, a colleague commented: ‘Yep. Thank God Jim's running this show so we can get out of here on time!’

“When I read over Tip #5 (‘Conduct the meeting using good facilitation techniques’), most of the points sounded like common sense. Then I realized that few of those excellent ideas were being applied at our campus meetings.

I decided to put in place almost all the checklist ideas, including the ‘parking lot.’ I was surprised when part of the list of tangents ‘parked’ on the chalkboard morphed into the focus for our follow-up meeting. I was so impressed by this concept's benefits that many of my class periods now include a note taker who helps me with ‘parking lot’ ideas we can return to at a later class meeting.

“Regarding the 5-point checklist in Tip #7 (‘Follow up afterward with summaries and action items’), your idea for the summary paid dividends in my meetings with the faculty. One of my colleagues had printed a hard copy of my e-mail summary and, without my urging, took it upon herself to perform the role of reminder. I love it. Everyone should perform routine follow-up, using an e-mail summary.

“I would also encourage anyone in the workplace to spend some time contemplating the multiple deep core lessons that emerge from a close reading of Appendix C (‘Is a Lack of Peer Cooperation Getting You Down? Try Triangulation’).

“Thanks again for such a valuable resource.”

Instructor, English Department, Californa Polytechnic (Cal Poly) State University
