For all you out there in management/leadership

Postby chadlincoln » Thu Nov 03, 2005 1:51 pm

I've been doing a lot of leadership reading the past few weeks to really develop my leadership skills. Here are the books I've read:

One Minute Manager- classic
One Minute Manager Builds High Peformance Teams- great read
Courageous Leadership- good church leadership book
The Next Generation Leader- good leadership book


For all those leaders/managers out there, which books have most influenced your management/leadership style?

I've managed/run several businesses, and have to say that I've never run a business based on a book. Most stuff is just plain old common sense. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Want to know how to lead people?

Watch PATTON and most anything with John Wayne or Lee Marvin. The end.

Joe from Reservoir Dogs was also a highly effective leader, it seemed, especially his response to "Why am I Mr. Pink?" The all-purpose response to insubordination. ;-D

Just don't hire Mr. Blonde. :-o

If we are recommending leadership skills from movies I have to go with Blake from Glengarry Glen Ross. ;-)

My favorite leader from the movies is hands down Col. Kilgore appocalypse now ;-D Charlie Don't Surf!

As far as books, I feel that if you are that determined to read a book about leadership you're either 1. never gonna get it or 2. have it and just want affirmation.
