Book recommendations for business leaders: 3/1/18

Mar 1, 2018 | 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 The Power of Moments, The Little BIG Things, The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity, and Memory Rescue: Supercharge Your Brain, Reverse Memory Loss and Remember.

From Theodore Kinni: The Power of a Free Popsicle

“A new book shows the value of memorable defining moments on customer and employee experiences.”

From Rebecca Elvy: Book Review: The Power of Moments

“In their ground breaking new book The Power of Moments Chip and Dan Heath make a pretty audacious claim: that they can teach us how to create defining moments.”

From Mike Haberman: Six Interesting age facts HR and business leaders should know

“A couple of interesting age facts taken from Tom Peters’ book The Little BIG Things. Written in 2010, the information he gives us about age is still relevant today, given that in 2017 age discrimination cases were in the top five discrimination claims made, making up almost 22% of claims filed.”

From Skip Prichard: Lead with Courage

“Leaders must regularly reach inside and draw courage to accomplish difficult goals. Leadership is a daily practice to become your best self and help others along the way. So explains Shelly Francis in her new book, The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity . Shelly has plenty of experience in her methods having served as the marketing and communications director at the Center for Courage & Renewal since 2012. The Center has over 5,000 participants in their programs each year.”

From Kevin Eikenberry: Memory Rescue: Supercharge Your Brain, Reverse Memory Loss and Remember What Matters Most

“Written by an MD who founded the famous Amen Clinics, this book takes a deep dive into brain function and why memory loss happens, and then happily provides tangible and specific steps to stop additional losses and even reverse some of those losses.”
