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.
