Want to enhance your performance? Robert Pozen, a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School, has written a new book that’s chock full of helpful hints on everything from how to sleep better on overnight business flights (window seat, no alcohol, earplugs, and eyeshades) to dealing with employees’ mistakes (“No matter how spectacularly the project flopped, don’t attack the person”).
The book is being called a “businessperson’s handbook” rather than a time-management book. So it deals with how to make meetings more productive, how to deal with your boss, and why you shouldn’t engage in career planning.
Working Knowledge has an interesting interview on the book with Pozen, and you can buy Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours (as well as read a sample) here. (Full disclosure: If you buy the book through this link, we’ll earn about 70 cents and be grateful for your support.)
