The author provides readers with another powerful and thought-provoking book, this one centered around a cure for the most painful yet underestimated problem of modern business: bad meetings. What he suggests is both simple and revolutionary. The fictional character, Casey McDaniel, the founder and CEO of Yip Software, is in the midst of a problem he created, but one he doesn't know how to solve. And he doesn't know where or who to turn to for advice. His staff can't help him; they're as dumbfounded as he is by their tortuous meetings. Then an unlikely advisor, Will Peterson, enters Casey's world. When he proposes an unconventional, even radical, approach to solving the meeting problem, Casey is just desperate enough to listen. As in his other books, the author provides a framework for his groundbreaking model, and makes it applicable to the real world. The book is a blueprint for leaders who want to eliminate waste and frustration among their teams, and create environments of engagement and passion.
