Death By Meeting By: Patrick M. Lencioni

Death by Meeting : A Leadership Fable...About Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business I just finished “Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable…About Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business” by Patrick M. Lencioni. The book was of a manageable length and provided an interesting insight into meetings. Building upon the 5 dysfunctions of a team, this book was worth the effort. It provided at minimum a process managing and participating in meetings. The book is written in a fable format similar other books by the author. I would recommend the book to anyone who is trying to improve how they hold and plan meetings.

SiteBar up and running!

Well it took me a bit of time but I was finally able to get my SiteBar server running. I had some issues with untaring the files but I was able to get beyond it with some help from the Angry Penguin.

SiteBar for those of you that don’t know, provides a service similar to the bookmarks feature in the Yahoo toolbar. Now my friends can have one central location to store their links and access them from any computer.

Another wonderful open source product.
