This list was posted inside of a construction trailer and I found it inspiring, I hope you do too!
Built from Scratch is the story of the founding and growth of The Home Depot. I really enjoyed this book and it is written in a similar style to Sam Walton Made in America. It covers topics of customer service, developing people, leadership, management, growth and more.
This is a helpful concept I was introduced to for improving how to delegate tasks and responsibilities. These are levels of authority you give to others when delegating.
Think and Grow Rich has been recommended by several friends and I read it in 2019 together with a mastermind group. It is no surprise that it is so popular and frequently recommended. It contains so much information, it will take several re-readings to absorb the content and put it all into action.
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.
"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.
Spiritual Leadership one of the best books I have read. It is powerful, deep, and dense with substance. It contains a multitude of applications for leadership and management.
My favorite chapters are 12: The Leader and Time and 13: The Leader and Reading. Chapter 13 contains practical applications on what to read, how to read, and how to get more out of what you read.
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.
