Asleep at the table

Best-selling author Patrick Lencioni's latest book, Death by Meeting, does double duty as a fast-paced page-turner and an allegory addressing a problem everyone can relate to: boring meetings. In this fictional tale, a struggling CEO hires a family friend who is, no joke, off his meds. The young newcomer shakes things up, transforming the company's interminable weekly meetings by adding drama and conflict and giving them structure (daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly). After the story ends, Lencioni explains how to implement his ideas to improve real-world meetings.
