I am excited to say that I have heard from many people who are following along this series. Whether that be on Facebook, Linked In, or this blog. Managers of companies in Arizona and Ohio who are taking their team through this series. Individuals who work at Disney, entrepreneurs who are just starting their companies and a few that already have their MBA. I am honored and humbled that you are learning and leading with me this year.
Last week I launched a series that I am doing this year called, “Learning Together and Leading Together”. We are going through a list of 99 books curated by Josh Kaufman that is called The Personal MBA. The idea is if you understand the concepts and ideas of these 99 books then you will have the equivalent knowledge of having your Masters of Business Administration. The goal of this series of blog posts this year is to get through 2 book summaries a week. Why book summaries and not the full book? Great question, read this post. I will also be linking to reviews, both audio and text, of the books I pick each week when possible. So follow along if you are interested in learning more about business and how to leverage it to make a difference.
Last week we went through the book summaries of:
- Brain Rules by John Medina and my thoughts about this book can be found here.
- Getting Things Done by David Allen and my thoughts about this book can be found here.
This week I have chosen the follow 2 book summaries:
- [amazon_image id=”0385491743″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less[/amazon_image]The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch (summary, review, audio)
- [amazon_image id=”1401309704″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential…in Business and in Life[/amazon_image]The Power of Less by Leo Babauta (summary, review, audio)
I will be writing my thoughts later this week on these 2 books. If you have comments or thoughts feel free to comment or write your own blog posts. If you do write your own posts let me know and I will link to them so that everyone can learn together.
