Earlier this year, our advisors shared a few of their business book recommendations that are applicable across all industries. Just in time for summer reading, we’ve asked our team for their business summer reading favorites that they recommend you add to your must-read list.
The 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership
I believe anyone aspiring to become an effective leader, as well as all current leaders, should read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You by John C. Maxwell. The book is full of examples from across industries that teach basic principles, or laws, that many have followed to personal and organizational success.
— Stephanie Sharpe, Senior IT Advisor
Good To Great
It’s popular for good reason — Good to Great by Jim Collins is the best business book ever written. Everyone who has a job or who wants a job needs to read this book cover to cover.
— Jose Roig, Executive IT Advisor
Rise Of The Robots
I recommend Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford. It explores the socioeconomic impact of automation and artificial intelligence, which gets readers thinking about what jobs technology will “eat” next, and the associated economic challenges.
First, Break All The Rules
First, Break All the Rules from Gallup is an eye-opening book for anyone in a leadership role or striving to move into one in the future. Despite working in different industries and for different types and sizes of companies, there is a commonality in all great managers — they all go against conventional wisdom to achieve success.
— Paul Solovyvosky, Senior IT Advisor
