Watch This Before Our Next Meeting

We've all sat through a bad meeting. If we're honest, we've all probably led a bad meeting, too.
Al Pittampalli's new book, Read This Before Our Next Meeting, is a great antidote to the bad meetings. In this video conversation, Al and I talk about:
What counts as a meeting - and what doesn't
How meetings are related to decisiveness
The odd reality that it's harder to get agreement in groups than it is to get disagreements
Why this book is for solos and small teams, even if Al wasn't writing it for us.
Al's a new contributor here at PF and also a great guy in general. I love the way his mind works.
After our call, Al let me know that his book hit #1 on Amazon's most downloaded free ebooks last week. Go Al! - and thanks to all of you who supported it.
What I particularly liked about this book is that Al didn't join the "meetings suck" camp and instead gave us a constructive, insightful framework that allows us to get together and channel the creative energy of our teams. Thanks, Al.
