I love being a business owner and conference speaker. The diversity of people that I meet at national conferences, 20 Groups, and of course online keep me motivated to write.
There are so many success stories in the business world. In order to sustain success, business managers need to be developing the next generation of leaders to carry the torch.
How is your company developing leaders? Passing the torch from generation to generation is not easy.
Second and third generation business owners may struggle to grow on the past success of their parents or grandparents.
Others have flourished to build a multi-generation, multi-million dollar business enterprise.
One thing I know from personal experience, is that there are many smart people in the world that we all can learn from. Many of these leaders have published books that are a wealth of knowledge to develop leaders. Are you an avid reader? Does your company have a leadership reading library?
Two Books You Must Read
I’m on pace to read at least 60 books this year and I would encourage you to build a leadership library. Here are two books that you should read this month:
Don’t Eat The Marshmallow Yet! – By Joachim de Posada
This is a great book for new managers, partners, or anyone that is experiencing some degree of sucess in their lives. Do you have people in the company that are spending their new found wealth or increased salary on things that have little value? This is a must read for anyone who wants to build a long-term, sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle. It is a FAST read, and highly recommended. If you have children, they MUST read this book before they leave home!
Lead by Greatness – By David Lapin
This is a book for people who want to be leaders or want to improve their leadership skils. People that want to impact their world by living a life that creates a nuclear force for positive change at the office. This is a short book that is very powerful with concepts that you will want to read slowly.
Do you like the idea of a leadership book library? There are number of great books to start the library that include:
- – The Go-Giver – By Bob Burg and John David Mann
- – Multipliers: How The Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter – By Liz Wiseman
- – The 10x Rule – By Grant Cardone
What 3 books would you recommend be added to the leadership library? Share them as a comment beow.
Now, it’s time to read!
