While companies, colleagues and clients often hold meetings to tackle their biggest challenges, the inability to collaborate and communicate effectively can stall progress and complicate the challenges in front of them.
In “Moments of Impact: How to Design Strategic Conversations That Accelerate Change,” authors Chris Ertel and Lisa Kay Solomon offer readers insights on how to better structure and direct dialogue to maximize the power of meetings. Through their book, they aim to show readers how to develop the skill behind strategic conversations – a skill they insist is given far too little attention.
Many meetings and conversations end decently but ultimately waste the time, energy and money of those involved, the authors write. “By contrast, great strategic conversations can be powerful moments of impact that drive positive change in an organization…They lift participants above the fray of daily concerns and narrow self-interest, reconnecting them to their greater, collective purpose.”
“Moments of Impact” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $16.80.
