The average working week in the US 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 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 rethink, redefine and reinvent the rules that govern the game. He encourages individuals to adopt new strategies that have proven to increase dramatically the performance levels of employees and companies alike. His suggestions include innovative business ideas like vertical meetings, where everyone stands, guaranteeing they will be shorter (where do you think Easyjet's Stelios got the idea). Kriegel challenges conventional wisdom in order to come up with dramatic new solutions to old problems. After all, that's the only way to succeed in business without working so damn hard...
