Personally Speaking: Applying Science To Create Successful Meetings

A recent estimate suggests employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States. Sadly, most meetings fail to engage us, or even worse, blatantly disregard our time. Now, meeting science can bring solutions forward to solve the meeting “problem.” In his award-winning book, The Surprising Science of Meetings: How you can Lead Your Team to Peak Performances, UNC Charlotte’s Steven G. Rogelberg shares an exciting evidence-based path for organizations, boards, community groups, committees, and leaders to realize the true potential of meetings and assure a return on a massive investment.

In The Surprising Science of Meetings: How you can Lead Your Team to Peak Performances, Rogelberg, consultant to some of the world's most successful companies, offers a how-to guide to holding productive meetings and changing one’s working life. The Washington Post named The Surprising Science of Meetings one of 10 leadership books to watch for in 2019. Business Insider named it one of 14 business books everyone will be reading in 2019.

PLEASE NOTE a change in times from previous seasons: Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for a reception; the program will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will be followed by a dessert reception and book-signing.

At UNC Charlotte, Rogelberg holds the title of Chancellor’s Professor for distinguished national, international, and interdisciplinary contributions. He also is a professor of organizational science, management and psychology and directs the Organizational Science Ph.D. Program
