Ever hear of the Meeting Canoe? It’s a blueprint for effective meetings that Dick and Emily Axelrod developed from their work with Peter Block and Kathy Dannemiller in the School for Managing and Leading Change. In their book, Let's Stop Meeting Like This: Tools to Save Time and Get More Done (excerpt pdf), Dick and Emily talk about how to design and lead the gathering that are vital to any change process. Join the conversation to learn more about a simple model to meet, collaborate, decide and get things done.
Richard Axelrod, MBA, teaches Crisis Leadership in the University of Chicago’s Masters in Threat and Response Management Program. He authored the award-winning Terms of Engagement: New Ways of Leading and Changing Organizations. Dick and his wife Emily Axelrod wrote You Don’t Have to Do It Alone: How to Involve Others to Get Things Done, which the New York Times called "the best of the current crop of books on this subject.” Dick is the recipient of the Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Chicago. He grew up in Chicago and remains a long suffering Chicago Cubs fan, which explains his optimistic spirit.
Emily Axelrod, MSW. MAT, is a contributing author to The Change Handbook, The Flawless Consulting Field Book, Future Search in School District Change, and numerous articles. She serves on the board the Organization Design Forum. Emily brings her southern spirit and wit to everything she does. Emily believes in stretching organizations so they can unleash their creativity and knowledge. Emily uses visioning, work redesign, team development, and good old common sense to build sustainable, fun, and collaborative enterprises.
