About the Book
A road-tested formula for improving your professional performance, from one of the business world's most successful and productive executives – with practical suggestions and takeaways in every chapter.
Discover the secrets to professional productivity and high performance. Extreme Productivity is for anyone feeling overwhelmed by their existing workload—facing myriad competing demands and multiple time-sensitive projects. Offering antidotes to a calendar full of boring meetings and a backlog of e-mails, Robert Pozen explains how to determine your highest priorities and match them with how you actually spend your time.
Pozen demonstrates that in order to be truly productive, professionals must make a critical shift in their mind-set: from hours worked to results produced. In a knowledge-based economy, what’s important is what you’ve accomplished, not how many hours you’ve logged at your desk.
Pozen teaches you how to efficiently complete your large projects and quickly move through the small stuff. He shows you how to delegate functions and manage your boss. He helps people at all stages of their careers read, write, and make presentations more effectively. He provides professionals with practical tips on how to efficiently use their time—while leading full and productive personal lives as well.
