I skim, read and study hundreds of books each year. Here are seven that will improve your leadership in various ways:
Ross Shafer has written a short but provocative book called Grab More Market Share. Read it if that’s what you want to do.
A classic I’ve referenced before and still in print is Fred Smith’s You and Your Network. Get it, read it and share it with your kids when they enter the world of work. It is packed with wisdom (I’ve given away dozens of copies).
Think work ethic is dead? And what can you do about it? Pre-order Reviving Work Ethic by Eric Chester. (I’ve read an advance copy.)
Do you get tired of boring meetings? Or are you guilty of holding boring meetings? Read Jon Petz’s book Boring Meetings Suck. It provides lots of ideas for making your meetings better.
Bob Burg and David Mann have written It’s Not About You. This leadership fable reinforces key leadership principles I believe in.
The Mackay MBA of Selling in the Real World was just released by Harvey Mackay and if you sell, or lead sales professionals, you’ll enjoy this story-driven book of advice.
And my last “favorite” is from Joe Calloway, Work Like You’re Showing Off. This is a fun read that will most likely reinvigorate you.
