The average work week is 60 hours and rising. These days, people are working harder than ever before: but these long hours don't necessarily translate into productivity. While individuals race to meet deadlines they aren't creating change; they are only responding to it. According to Robert Kriegel, the only way to succeed in today's business climate is to break away from old modes, myths and mindsets and re-think, re-define and re-invent the rules that govern the game. Kriegel encourages individuals to adopt new strategies that have proven to dramatically increase the performance levels of employees and companies alike. His suggestions include innovative business ideas like vertical meetings: everyone stands, guaranteeing meetings will be shorter. Kriegel challenges convential wisdom in order to come up with dramatic new solutions to old problems. After all, this is the only way to suceed in business without working so damn hard.
