Renowned leaders have a thirst for knowledge and are constantly looking at ways to improve their learning. Welch was an avid reader of the financial and management press and journals. He makes it very clear that it is a leader’s role to be up to date. He went on to give this advice to leaders “Read, read, read”.
The father of management, Peter Drucker, sadly passed away in 1997. His work contains many gems that have been overlooked. Alongside Drucker there are some brilliant writers like Jack Welch, Tom Peters & Robert Waterman, Gary Hamel and Jim Collins who have now taken over the batten. The only problem is that many of us are too busy to read and absorb their work. All leadership issues that a leader will ever face have been discussed in the following books. Become a disciple of their work and your leadership will flourish.
This unique implementation working guide covers the wisdom from these great management thinkers. The 20 page working guide summarizes hundreds of hours of reading the books from these great masters. I have spent around US$20,000 researching, writing and testing this working guide. I guarantee, if you purchase, read, and act you will save many times the cost of this guide.
