Book recommendations for business leaders: 12/8/16

Dec 8, 2016 | Reading Lists

Stephen King says that if you want to be a writer, there are two things you must do: read a lot and write a lot. This is about the “read a lot” part. I include reading lists and book reviews that will help you do business more effectively and write better for business.

In this post, I point you to reviews of Turning Your Potential into Tangible Success, Winning the Brain Game, and How to Get Off the Hook. But first, here’s a link to Michael McKinney’s “First Look: Leadership Books for December 2016.”

From thoughtLEADERS: Turning Your Potential into Tangible Success

“Achieving greatness is a matter of mindset, action, and habit. The more you reflect on where you are and where you want to be then take action to move in that direction every day, the higher the likelihood you’ll achieve the success you desire. Today’s post is by Michael Teoh, co-author of The Potential Matrix.”

From Michael Bungay Stanier: Matthew May Takes on Flawed Thinking

“I loved Matthew May’s 2010 book, In Pursuit of Elegance: Why the Best Ideas Have Something Missing. It was a seminal text for me. He now has a new book out, titled Winning the Brain Game: Fixing the 7 Fatal Flaws of Thinking. I can’t recommend it enough.”

From Theodore Kinni: How to Get Off the Hook

“A Harvard Medical School psychologist explains how to manage your emotions and achieve your goals.”
