One book I re-read every year

 In Uncategorized

There is one book I re-read every year. I guess its because I kind of geek out on leadership books and one of the best ones that justifies a re-read annually is Jim Collins Good to Great. Here is the jist of the book, and if you lead a company, a non-profit, a team or a family – I think it is worth your time to pick up this book.

Here is a partial review of the book – and its principles have proven to be true for me in my leadership over and over again.

The good-to-great leaders understood three simple truths. First, if you begin with “who” rather than “what” you can more easily adapt to a changing world. Second, if you have the right people on the bus, the problem of how to motivate and manage people largely goes away. The right people don’t need to be tightly managed or fired up; they are self-motivated. Third, if you have the wrong people, it doesn’t matter whether you discover the right direction, you still won’t have a great company. Great vision without great people is irrelevant.

So very very true.
