Today’s doctors must spend an enormous amount of time on activities unrelated to patient care. Learning to run effective meetings allows doctors to allocate more of their time to patient care – the reason they chose medicine in the first place.
In the Doctor’s Edition of the book How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want), co-authors Dick Massimilian and Ron Blumoff, MD, give their insight into how doctors can lead more effective meetings that achieve the intended results.

Take Charge of Your Meetings
It seems these days that everyone hates meetings. But when you talk to people, it isn’t that they hate meetings; it’s that they don’t like meetings in which nothing gets done. No one is sure why the meeting was called, or why half the people are in the room, or what exactly is supposed to get done, or what was decided. We complain about meetings, but we seem to attend more and more of them.
How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want) is for people who need to lead effective meetings, in any context. It is a blueprint for how to have your meetings work, defined as, meetings that achieve the results you want to achieve, in the meeting and afterward. It’s a how-to guide for using the time you spend planning, organizing and conducting meetings wisely. It’s about getting results through meetings.
