9780062188533: Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours

Robert C. Pozen is a business professor who teaches a full course load at Harvard Business School while serving as the full-time chairman of a global financial services firm. He's written six books and hundreds of articles, raised a family with his wife of more than four decades, and served on many boards of local charities and public companies. Pozen is a prince of productivity, a man who has worked smarter and faster than almost anyone around him for over forty years. In "Extreme Productivity", Pozen reveals the secrets to workplace productivity and high performance. His book is for everyone feeling overwhelmed by their existing workload and faced with a myriad of competing demands and multiple time-sensitive projects. The antidote to a calendar full of boring meetings and a backlog of emails, "Extreme Productivity" provides busy professionals with an analytical framework aimed at prioritizing their time for high-impact results and refining their career goals for long-term success. Pozen shows that in order to be truly productive, professionals must make a critical shift in mindset: from hours worked to results produced. He explains how to determine your highest priorities and match these priorities with how you actually spend your time. He also provides a toolkit of practical tips and techniques to help professionals at all stages of their careers maximize their time at work - while leading full and productive personal lives as well.

Review:

“It’s impossible to get ahead in today’s knowledge economy without knowing how to read, write, and speak effectively. Pozen’s tips on these three subjects alone are enough to make Extreme Productivity required reading for professionals-and aspiring professionals-of all levels.” (Shirley Ann Jackson, President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Former Chairman of U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (1995 - 1999))

“Read this book if you want to learn how to run efficient and effective meetings-or how to avoid them altogether. Bob really knows how to lead a discussion, get the group engaged, and drive to a consensus on what to do.” (J. Michael Cook, Director of Comcast and IFF, Chairman and CEO Emeritus of Deloitte)

“Personal productivity requires you to focus on the most important tasks rather than spending your time on busy work or small wins. If you want to learn how to raise your game, look no further than Extreme Productivity.” (David Calhoun, Chairman and CEO of Nielsen, former Vice Chairman of General Electric)

“Filled with useful recommendations on a wide variety of topics, this book will find adherents at every level of the company org chart.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[Pozen’s] insights on traveling effectively, embracing change, and balancing home and work are particularly valuable...An excellent how-to on personal productivity.” (Booklist)

Extreme Productivity is filled with such sage advice and pragmatism... The book is populated with practical, real world anecdotes....For companies’ to have more effective boards, they will need to change with the times. A good place to start is to read Extreme Productivity.” (Huffington Post)

“I believe that everyone will find at least one section of the book that will resonate with them. Extreme Productivity is the essential guide to investing our time wisely.” (Newsweek)
