How To Have Better Meetings
How in the world do we have better meetings? It's a question on so many people's minds — and probably has been for decades, honestly. Whether online or offline, most meetings tend to be boring, frustrating and ineffective. Luckily, most employees and teams can fix them rather easily. Here's how.
Back in my corporate career days, I hated meetings.
There were too many of them. They were too crowded. The purpose was unclear. Dominant people would hijack them. Nobody listened to each other. And, after 60 minutes (or more!), people were happy to leave so they could finally get back to work.
Over the years, we learned from various pioneering organizations that it doesn't have to be that way. Meetings can be fun, energetic, and, image this: highly productive.
We've worked with these pioneers to create a fully on-demand course for the Corporate Rebels Academy.
It's called "Run better meetings."
Run better meetings
Two weeks ago, we launched an early bird promotion for this course. To our great excitement, all 50 tickets have already sold out.
As of now, the course is available to all. The course is fully on-demand and is therefore made to study entirely in your own time and at your own pace.

Today, we are launching another course in the Corporate Rebels Academy: “How Buurtzorg Works.” This inspiring case study of highly successful self-management explains how Buurtzorg, an organization with over 15,000 nurses, has pushed the boundaries of home health care in the Netherlands by operating with 100+ completely self-managed teams.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup has been appearing in the news for all the wrong reasons and is already one of the most controversial sporting events that have been organized. There have been many concerns about Qatar’s suitability as a host country but even more touched on is the treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure. This is something that FIFA should have been aware of when the decision was made to host the event in Qatar due to the knowledge that the country relies heavily on migrant workers and its exploitive labor system.
For the last two years, we've been working on a book about Haier, the Chinese manufacturing firm reinventing management as we know it. Writing this book was a long, interesting, and intense process, but we managed to wrap up the final manuscript of the book earlier this year, titled "Start-up Factory." Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
