RECOMMENDED BOOKS FOR YOUR TOOL KIT

The Oz Principle

This is the ultimate guide on “calling out” Excuses and driving Accountability through your group. It provides a practical hands on approach and language for taking ownership and getting things done. I give a copy of it to every manager who works for me.

ZAPP! The Power of Empowerment

This quick read shows “Management Style” at its best and worst. You will want to leave it on someone’s desk. Just make sure you read it first.

Atlas Shrugged

by  Ayn Rand

This book takes some effort to get through, but it is worth it.  It lays out the fundamental importance of entrepreneurs and business in our society.  It should be mandatory reading for everyone.

    Love this list. I’ve often thought someone should make Obama read “Atlas Shrugged.” Actually, I haven’t read “Oz” yet, but I’m putting it on my “want to read” list.
