Full Description

Casey McDaniel had never been so nervous in his life.

In just ten minutes, The Meeting, as it would forever beknown, would begin. Casey had every reason to believe thathis performance over the next two hours would determine the fate ofhis career, his financial future, and the company he had built fromscratch.

"How could my life have unraveled so quickly?" hewondered.

In his latest page-turning work of business fiction, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni provides readers with anotherpowerful and thought-provoking book, this one centered around acure for the most painful yet underestimated problem of modernbusiness: bad meetings. And what he suggests is both simpleand revolutionary.

Casey McDaniel, the founder and CEO of Yip Software, is in themidst of a problem he created, but one he doesn't know how tosolve. And he doesn't know where or who to turn to foradvice. His staff can't help him; they're asdumbfounded as he is by their tortuous meetings.

Then an unlikely advisor, Will Peterson, enters Casey'sworld. When he proposes an unconventional, even radical, approach to solving the meeting problem, Casey is just desperateenough to listen.

As in his other books, Lencioni provides a framework for hisgroundbreaking model, and makes it applicable to the realworld. Death by Meeting is nothing short of ablueprint for leaders who want to eliminate waste and frustrationamong their teams, and create environments of engagement andpassion.
