Product description

Review

"I am honestly bowled over by the wisdom, practical tips, readability, and overall incredible usefulness of this book.
As a meeting facilitator and facilitation skills trainer for the past 25+ years, I can say, unequivocally, that Where the Action Is just may be the best book I have ever read on the topic of meeting design and facilitation. Using concrete examples and impeccable logic, Elise Keith proves the point that we don't necessarily need fewer or shorter meetings, but we need much better meetings. This insightful book shows how it's done.
If you apply the tips and techniques you'll find here, I can guarantee that the quality of your meetings will improve exponentially."
--Nancy Settle-Murphy, author of Leading Effective Virtual Teams: Overcoming Time and Distance to Achieve Exceptional Results

"Elise Keith understands meetings at such a high level. And, she has translated these understandings into a truly compelling book chock full of great insights and advice. This book will serve as a fantastic resource to managers and leaders alike."
--Dr. Steven G. Rogelberg, winner of the 2017 Humboldt Prize and author of The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead your Team to Peak Performance

"If you aspire to fun, productive and efficient meetings you can either learn by trial and error, inflicting much pain on your organization along the way, or benefit from the tips on design and execution Elise Keith lays out in her excellent new book Where the Action Is"
--Neal Bastick, CEO MeetingSphere Collaborative Meeting Solutions
