The holiday season can be an excellent time for reading and reflection, with the long weekends of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s falling in a six-week period.
We recently tapped into the brain trust at Generational Equity and asked, “What books do you recommend to fellow business leaders?” Here are their answers.
Losing The Signal
Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of BlackBerry by Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff
Losing the Signal appears on several lists as one of the best business books of 2015. Rather than a story of business failure due to fraud or incompetence, Blackberry lost its overwhelming hold on the mobile communication market in spectacularly quick fashion due an internal failure to change and innovate.
Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big by Bo Burlingham
Sometimes bigger isn’t better, and Small Giants explores the possibilities of keeping a company smaller. Keeping a company smaller may allow you to perform better, create a great place to work, offer superior customer service, and focus on other satisfying business goals.
Start With Why
This book on leadership helps you figure out the ‘why,’ so that the who, what, when and how no longer matter. Start with Why helps you find your personal mojo, the unique traits that give you energy to power through the tough times, influence others and drive profitability. Get a feel for Sinek’s approach by watching his TED talk.
