The ONE Thing is incredible and is on my list of best books of 2018. It shares several similar concepts with Essentialism. The main concepts that helped me are learning to use the focusing question, being aware of the domino effect, and time blocking.
Insights into building company culture, what makes good team players, and specific tactics for interviewing and hiring. The book has value for any leaders, managers, employees, and especially for anyone involved in hiring and human resources.
Bluefishing exceeded my expectations. Steve Sims makes many key points covering topics of passion, relationships, career advice, learning, failure, creating experiences for people and customers, brand building, and more.
"Your job is to show people how to manage themselves and enjoy it. You want them to succeed when you are not around." This quote summarizes the message of the book. It is written as a narrative. Contains many good insights. I recommend it for anyone, and especially managers and leaders.
Richard has some great thoughts about passion, note-taking, listening, leadership, hiring, and delegating. I especially recommend reading if you are looking for advice on these topics.
The Compound Effect has had a significant impact on me, I have re-read it multiple times. I recommend the audio version which is read by the author, it is motivating and inspiring.
Filled with good questions, advice on listening and tips on saying no. I recommend this book for almost everyone including leaders, managers, parents and employees.
