Patrick Lencioni is an author who I admire and whose work I really enjoy. This month, I’d like to share Death by Meeting with you.
How many times have you groaned when you hear the phrase, “Let’s meet about that?” Admit it: you roll your eyes when certain people put a meeting on your calendar.
You’re going to love this book.
Here’s a bit about the book:
Death by Meeting focuses on a cure for the most painful yet underestimated problem of modern business: bad meetings. And what he suggests is both simple and revolutionary.
Casey McDaniel, the founder and CEO of Yip Software, is in the midst of a problem he created, but one he doesn’t know how to solve. And he doesn’t know where or who to turn to for advice. His staff can’t help him; they’re as dumb-founded as he is by their tortuous meetings.
Then an unlikely advisor, Will Peterson, enters Casey’s world. When he proposes an unconventional, even radical approach to solving the meeting problem, Casey is just desperate enough to listen.
As in his other books, Lencioni provides a framework for his groundbreaking model, and makes it applicable to the real world. Death by Meeting is nothing short of a blueprint for leaders who want to eliminate waste and frustration among their teams, and create environments of engagement and passion.
