Getting ready for the new year? If you’re like me you’re sitting there thinking of all the new ways you want to do things differently in 2008. One way that I am tackling this is to revisit some great resources and tools that I have used (and continue to use) to help me with the multitude of things that we all have to deal with. These deal with leadership skills, management skills, selling skills, productivity and business. So in no particular order here are 10 books that I have used in the past year to help me.
Jeffrey Gitomer – Little Red Book of Selling: 12.5 Principles of Sales Greatness
Earl Nightingale – Earl Nightingale’s The Strangest Secret
Ken Blanchard – Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager
Ken Blanchard – The One Minute Manager
Spencer Johnson – Who Moved My Cheese?
Jim Collins – Good to Great
Thomas Friedman – The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century
Rudy Guliani – Leadership
David Allen – Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
Earl Nightingale – Creative Thinking (Audio CD)
Now I know there are hundreds of books out there to utilize and these are just a small sampling. You will also notice that I have three books that I feature on this site and they are by Guy Kawasaki, Sun Tzu and Jeffrey Gitomer. These I highly recommend for creativity, marketing, management strategies and customer service and customer loyalty. Enjoy!
