One of the lessons I
learnt very early in life is that most of the personal development should be
self-driven. The majority of what I know as a Consultant is self-taught and
experimentation in real life. I read lots of books. When on the road I listen to one to two audiobooks. I use most
of my idle time to listen to audiobooks and read books on Amazon Kindle. Today I want to share the books that have
helped me go a gear up in what I do. I
will start with audible books and go to Kindle books.
What runs through these
books are practical life lessons for everyone who aspires to improve themselves.
My American Journey, for example, looks
at leadership and strategy in a war situation but written specifically for
executive leaders and those who aspire to go into leadership. I have never seen
a book that so rich with practical lessons that you can put to use daily in
your life. When I finished the Drunkard’s walk my whole life changed
concerning how I look at facts of life and interpret them. I learnt that there
are things that happen in life that are random and have no immediate explanation.
The quest for answers must always be guided by science and facts. You can not
remain the same after going through this book.
As you go through the book “Be Board ready” you will learn what
it takes to prepare for board appointments.
Betsy takes you through a journey of practical steps you need to take to
prepare for this journey. Naomi Stanford takes you through a
journey to understand in simple terms what organisational culture is and how to
transform it. I have chosen the above books for their practical value. They all
talk about the problems you encounter every day and how to develop solutions
for them. If you are like me; self-driven, then do not miss the book “ What it takes to be #1”.
On the books I have personally read and benefited immensely
from the Amazon Kindle books are the following 10 books:
The above 10 Kindle
books are a must for everyone in a leadership position or aspiring to go into a
leadership position. I have chosen the above books because of their practical
value to everyone who wants to improve how they manage themselves and others.
