You commented on Start With Why How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action

  • I've been a follower of Simon Sinek for years. This book as well as Leaders Eat Last have probably been the two I've applied most to my leadership style. For me it showed up in changing from looking at tasks or products as just deliverables, but ways to create a connection point with constituents. Forging something at a higher level than a transactional consumer. But instead functioning as a creator. I will be up front and that it took alot of energy to move in this direction. Some days it was just honestly easier to fall back on established habits and act like the "Superman". But having that mission be the lens really helps to prioritize where you spend your resources and the appropriate metrics to look at to gauge success.

  • I've had the pleasure of working with John Rossman on a national project where he advised my organization during the build phase. In addition to "Think Like Amazon", I also found value in his earlier books "The Amazon Way" and "The Amazon Way on IoT". All great reads.

  • Mike, I'd be happy to share a few more insights and, Bryan, I agree with your perspective. Fred Kofman is a fantastic author. I believe one of my most important responsibilities as a leader is to develop high-performing teams and there are no short-cuts. Formal authority and a requirement for teams to meet performance goals works but to capture the full productive capacity of our teams leaders need to foster a culture of trust, accountability, respect, and an internal drive of each team member to help the team and help the company. Fred does a good job of breaking-down business and psychological concepts into easily digestible components that aid leaders is developing the right team culture of performance. For me, implementing Fred's concepts has taken practice, patience, a dose of humility, and courage to have the tough conversations when and where they are needed (whether with the teams I lead or with my executive colleagues) but the rewards have exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this book.

  • One of my favorite business books (and authors) of all time. Fred Kofman is now working at Google. Watch any of his videos or read this book - you will NOT be disappointed! He is one of the few authors that truly articulates how to change your behavior and language in an authentic manner to simply be better. And he is a tremendous storyteller - you will remember what he says because you will remember the stories. Just brilliant.
