Book recommendations for business leaders: 5/25/17

May 25, 2017 | Reading Lists

In this post, I point you to reviews of Eat That Frog, Ego Free Leadership, It Worked for Me, Radical Candor, and Humility is the New Smart.

From Kevin Eikenberry: Eat That Frog: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time

“You might be thinking this is a strange title for a book, especially one that has sold over 1.5 million copies in it’s first two editions.”

From Michael McKinney: Ego Free Leadership

“Ego Free Leadership is co-written by executive coach Shayne Hughes, president of Learning as Leadership and Brandon Black the retired CEO of Encore Capital Group. The book tracks Black’s journey from acknowledging to changing the destructive elements of his ego.”

From Ken Downer: It Worked for Me

“I hope you have problems. That’s a good thing, really. A book I read recently cast a whole new light on what it means to have problems as a leader, and what you should do about them.”

From Theodore Kinni: Why Managers Can’t Skimp on Radical Candor

“Author Kim Scott argues that managers who care personally and challenge their team directly can improve results.”

From Harold Jarche: humility is the new smart

“In Humility is the New Smart, the authors put forth a new mental model and management framework, based on extensive research on what the ‘smart machine age’ (SMA) will look like.”
