Christopher Cox presents The Deadline Effect: How to Work Like It’s the Last Minute—Before the Last Minute
In conversation with Krishna Andavolu
Award-winning journalist Christopher Cox joins Greenlight (virtually!) to share The Deadline Effect, a wise and counterintuitive book that explores the power of deadlines as uniquely effective tools of motivation and empowerment. After putting in a few too many late nights in the newsroom, Cox became determined to learn the secret of managing deadlines. In observing nine different organizations as they approached a high-pressure deadline, he made an even greater discovery: these experts didn’t just meet their big deadlines—they became more focused, productive, and creative in the process. In The Deadline Effect, Cox shares the strategies these teams used to guarantee success while staying on schedule and explains how readers can understand the psychological underpinnings of expectations and time, the dynamics of teams and customers, and techniques for using deadlines to make better, more assured decisions. Cox is joined in conversation by Krishna Andavolu, the anchor of VICE News' Emmy-winning television newsmagazine, VICE News Tonight, and a correspondent for VICE on Showtime.
In the tradition of Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit, Christopher Cox’s The Deadline Effect is a wise and counterintuitive book that explores the power of deadlines as uniquely effective tools of motivation and empowerment.
“The good news . . . is that we can make deadlines work for us instead of the other way around. Mr. Cox has a wry touch . . . and a good eye for detail.” —Wall Street Journal
