Two new books for by book clubs this month that are worth your time....
First, a short, easy, and very worthwhile read is found in
The 5 Temptations of the CEO by Patrick Lencioni. It's a short fable chock full of good stuff for managers and leaders.
Second book is long, but very worthwhile. Steven Covey's The 8th Habit is great. Includes a DVD full of short movies that illustrate Covey's points. I have more underlining and comments in this book than in any other I've read in the past year or so. If you have a long drive time, you might want to get the audio CD.
These are books that belong in your head, not on your shelf.
And, a big welcome to all the readers of Harvard Business School's Working Knowledge. The publication featured the Mission-Based Management Blog....glad to have you with us.
