Death by Meeting
A Leadership Fable...About Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business
About the summary
In Death by Meeting, Patrick Lencioni lays out a “contrarian, non-traditional view of meetings” to take “what is now painful and tedious” and transform it “into something productive, compelling, and even energizing.” On top of that, organizations that follow Lencioni’s guidelines will no longer be wasting “time, energy, and enthusiasm lamenting the drudgery of meetings” like their competitors and will thus gain a competitive edge. Presented in parts as a fable and as direct guidance, Death by Meeting is a path for any manager or leader to find more effective ways to meet with staff and “restore some of the passion” that is sorely missing from these encounters.
