Al Pittampalli's Biography

Al Pittampalli is the author of two books that combine research and storytelling to help leaders adapt to a fast changing world. His latest is, “Persuadable: How Great Leaders Change Their Minds to Change the World” (Harper Business). The willingness to change our minds is often perceived as a weakness in our culture, but in this book, Al uses decades of social science to reveal it as the ultimate leadership advantage.

His first book, “Read This before Our Next Meeting: How We Can Get More Done” not only explains what’s wrong with “the meeting,” and meeting culture, but suggests how to make meetings more effective, efficient, and worthy of attending by answering a critical question: What exactly is the purpose of the modern meeting? Now out in over 100,000 copies, it was the most popular kindle book in the world during the week of its release. Todd Sattersten, former president of 800-CEO-READ and author of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time, named “Read This Before Our Next Meeting” the #4 best business book of 2011. It’s been translated into five different languages.

Al has helped organizations like NASA, Hewlett Packard, Abbott Labs, Kaiser Permanente and more transform the way they think about leadership. A prolific lecturer, Al has spoken at Fortune 500, nonprofit, and governmental organizations all over the world. He currently lives in New York City.
