The Business of Spreading Ideas with Al Pittampalli

Al Pitampalli’s frustration with endless meetings and other things that don’t seem to have a purpose led to what he calls a meetings revolution. In this episode we discuss his experience as one of Seth Godin’s first alternative MBA students, publishing a book with the domino project and why we must learn to become persuadable…that’s right not persuasive, but persuadable, and how this enables us to spread ideas.

  • The importance of continually asking why
  • Learning to explore our hidden assumptions
  • The power of thinking backwards 
  • Why certain ideas are inherently spreadable
  • The meetings epidemic in organizational culture
  • Advantages of becoming more persuadable
  • Dissecting and understanding our models of the world

Quotes

When you want to change the world, the most dangerous thing can do is being unpersuadable
