Greetings

For the beginning of this year, I would like to further aid you in your professional development by sharing some great things from last year and a few things planned for this year.  Also, I want to thank many people for their support of me in expanding my training and development endeavors to multiple people and companies.

 

Looking forward to New Year

Coming in March, is the most exciting news.  My book "R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard's Approach" will be available on Amazon.com.   This book is a must-have guide that demonstrates effective meeting planning and management.  It presents an approach to more effective meetings called R.A!R.A!.  It should do for meetings what Six Sigma did for Quality. I hope you enjoy the book and call me if you need a facilitator.

 

NOTE:  If a DFW area organization orders 10 or more copies of R.A!R.A! book, I will be happy to come on-site for a personal book signing.

See side-bar on right for more info on book. >>>

 

Also my website has received an updated look , includes an assortment of customer testimonials, and it has moved to a new URL.   Visit my new site at http://www.shirleyfinelee.com/, check out the

FREE STUFF in bottom right corner of home page, and let me know what you think of the new look and options.

These include the Dallas chapter of ASTD newsletter and UK's Top Choice Reviews, as well as multiple websites for Time Management or Small Business.
 

Other Activities

In addition to being a member of Dallas ASTD for several years, this past year I served as their VP of Communications and Technology.  Working with the members of the Leadership Team was an enjoyable experience.  Editing the society's newsletter and maintaining their website was also a rewarding challenge.

“Lousy meetings contribute to lousy results. If your meetings leave something to be desired, follow the steps in this book.”

- Randy Pennington, Author of Results Rule! Build a Culture that Blows the Competition Away

“All of us struggle with better managing our valuable time so that we invest it in the best ways to achieve our goals. While many are essential, meetings are one of the biggest killers of our time. There are so many pitfalls with meetings that gobble up time. To our rescue is Shirley Lee's book, which even uses a metaphoric wizard icon for conveying not only the need for using many skills but also the near magic needed to manage time invested in meetings. This is a clever and high-payback read that I highly recommend.”
