5 Books Leaders Should Read In August 2022
Today’s world tells us that the short-term is the most important. We all know this isn’t true. However, the tyranny of the urgent supersedes the importance of the long-term.
Clark, in her great book, helps us to remember success requires us to persevere and give our best effort. These are the key components to playing the long game and truly winning in business.
I found The Alchemy of Us to be absolutely fascinating. Ramirez helps us remember how connected things in our world really are.
In her book, Ramirez examines 8 things- clocks, steel rails, copper communication cables, photographic film, light bulbs, hard disks, scientific labware, and silicon chips. These inventions shaped humanity in a new way.
As leaders, we have to look forward and see how things can change and shape us. This is the book to help you begin to comprehend how this happens.
