Here is a short list:
- Moneyball by Michael Lewis—the story of how two guys changed the management of the sporting industry at every level in the last 15 years.
- The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni—No one writes a better book about leadership and management than Patrick. This one gets to the heart of truly effective leadership.
- Good to Great by Jim Collins—Want to know the behaviors of leaders who build great long-lasting organizations? This is the one to read. It’s spot-on in every regard.
- The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni—Want to know how to increase your chances of recruiting and building a great team? Then, this is the book for you.
There are others that we will pass along, but these books not only offer some powerful lessons, but they are enjoyable to read as well.
