I recently asked our CEO, Rachel Honoway what “business books” she recommends, and here are the top four she shared with me:
1. The Ultimate Question: Driving Good Profits and True Growth by Fred Reichheld – This is a great one to read and then re-read over and over again.
2. Topgrading: The Proven Hiring and Promoting Method That Turbocharges Company Performance by Bradford D. Smart Ph.D. – For anyone that has any part of a hiring process in companies large and small – read this book before you make the giant mistakes that you would without reading it!
3. A New Earth by Eckart Tolle (an Oprah Book Club pick)- Though this book is about spirituality and self-discovery, it is a good reflection for all parts of life including work. I really believe that in order to be a productive team member and an effective leader, I need to be balanced, centered person – this book helps identify things that are off kilter and guides you towards balance.
4. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra – Good businesses are extensions of their leaders. This book includes 7 “laws” that help you become a successful person and carry that success to your work and your business.
All of the above books ranked as best sellers in Amazon in the Success, Teams, Motivational, Human Resources & Personnel Management and/or Personal Growth & Inspiration categories.
Which books do you recommend to run a successful business?
