  • Leadership, Team Development, etc. Books

    Hi y'all! One of my goals this year is to boost my personal development by reading one book related to leadership, team development, sales/marketing, training/coaching, etc. every month. What would you recommend and why?

    oh....good idea. I could use some boosting as well so I am following this post.

      I've read this one, the One Minute Manager

      And then I search different phrases when I'm bored and find things like this. It doesn't have to be an entire book if you pick up an idea or two when things are slow in your office if they increase your time management. ;-)

          Gina6k and Iamkathleenj, excellent ideas! I've read "One Minute Manager" before and really liked it - it's been a few years so probably not a bad idea to dig it out.

            The Thank you Economy - Gary Vaynerchuk
            The 10x Rule - Grant Cardone
            Never Split the Difference - Chris Voss
            Shoe Dog - Phil Knight
            Building A Story Brand - Donald Miller

            Those should get you started. These are probably the top 5 books I read that transitioned my mindset over the years. The 10X Rule really helped me with setting goals, and I would probably credit the book to one of the reasons I was able to escape homelessness 5-6 years ago. Amazing the power these books can hold - If you want more suggestions, I have a literal library at home I'd love to share with anyone who needs it!

              I have taught (past life) management. My most highly recommended book is "The Game of Work," by Charles Coonradt. It was written in the mid 80's and the principals are clear and easily understood.

                  Thanks for the great advice luckily this is not my first disaster. But I have come across many lessons learnt that I will need to improve on for the future. In regards to tenant notifications, and use of cloud computing software.
