Reading an article this morning at the Wall Street Journal Online about workplace productivity and motivating your staff. They listed five must-read books on ways to increase productivity. Here were the top five:
“The Human Side of Enterprise” by Douglas McGregor
“Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance?” by Louis V. Gerstner Jr.
“The Knowing-Doing Gap: How Smart Companies Turn Knowledge into Action” by Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton
“Leaders: Strategies for Taking Charge” by Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus
“Diamond Dollars: The Economics of Winning in Baseball” by Vincent Gennaro
I haven’t read any of these personally, but, most likely in these current times may just get some of these. If you have ever read any of these books I would appreciate hearing from you and your comments.
