“The meeting system is broken. We can fix them. Let’s go.” Strong words from Al Pittampalli. In his new book, Read This Before Our Next Meeting, Al is very direct in calling for a change to the way businesses do meetings. I happen to agree with him and enjoyed reading his book.
If you’re a leader, read this book and then think hard before scheduling that next meeting. If you’re not the one calling the meeting, but you still have to go, read this book and then start holding the person leading the meetings accountable for how they utilize/waste your time.
Meetings are still necessary. Just don’t let them get in the way of doing the work. Enjoy Al’s little video intro to his book.
