I listened to this story twice and found it exactly what I was looking for, as a recipe for creating compelling meetings with my staff of 16 managers. The model is simple to implement and creates immediate results, from interesting short weekly tactical meetings to monthly & quarterly strategic discussions with active debate. I also recommend reading Patrick's other title on the "Five Dysfunctions of a Team" as it melds very well with this one to build overall team strength with robust communications and a trust ethic that gets results.
