Quotable Quote

  Simple, clear purpose and principles give rise to complex, intelligent behaviour.  Complex rules and regulations give rise to simple, stupid behaviour.
Dee Hock, former CEO of Visa International

Meetings - can't live with them, can't live without them? 

Meetings aren't the problem.  It's the way we run meetings, the process is seriously flawed.

Action Meetings is a redesigned meeting process that prevents many common meeting failures.  The results are surprising! 

How many more bad (or even OK) meetings will you survive?

A white-collar worker will spend 7,680 hours (or 960 days) of his or her working life in meetings!  And, the higher up the ladder you go, the more time you'll spend in meetings.  Scary thought, isn't it?

Meetings are a critical process to getting things done.  Some organisations ban them completely - but it is not a real solution.

You can always try the usual fixes: better chairperson, strong leadership, take good minutes, prepare a detailed agenda, strictly manage time and so on.  But these fixes don't really work - because they don't address the real problems in the traditional meeting model.

Action Meetings was developed from an analysis of meeting failure.  The reasons were discovered and dealt to.  That's what makes Action Meetings different and successful.

Take a tour around this site - discover for yourself where you fit into the picture and how Action Meetings will transform your 'meeting' life and gain you valuable time that you can put to better use.  Get your work done sooner and go home on time every day, or spend time doing more pleasurable pursuits that allow you to relax, unwind, recharge your batteries, socialise, spend time with your partner, children, fishing, sporting activities, .....

Health warning!  If you or your organisation does not want to be high-performing, then Action Meetings must not be taken in case the shock may be too much.
