Finding the Next Steve Jobs by Nolan Bushnell with Gene Stone: Nolan Bushnell founded the groundbreaking gaming company Atari in 1972, and two years later employed Steve Jobs, as well as many other creatives over the course of his five decades in business. Here Bushnell explains how to find, hire, and nurture the people who could turn your company into the next Atari or the next Apple. Bushnell’s advice is constantly counter-intuitive, surprising, and atypical. When looking for employees, ignore credentials. Hire the obnoxious (in limited numbers). Demand a list of favorite books. Ask unanswerable questions, and much more.
The ONE Thing by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan: You want less. You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out. And you want more. You want more productivity from your work. More income for a better lifestyle. You want more satisfaction from life, and more time. In The One Thing, you will learn how you can have both — less and more — by cutting through clutter, building momentum, staying on track, and much more.
Tribal Leadership by Dave Logan, John King and Halee Fischer-Wright: Tribal Leadership offers a fascinating look at corporate tribes — groups of 20-150 people within a company that come together on their own rather than through management decisions — and how executives can use tribes to maximize productivity and profit. Drawing upon research from a 10-year study of more than 24,000 people in two dozen organizations, the authors argue that tribes have the greatest influence in determining how much and what quality work gets done. The authors identify the five stages of employee tribal development and offer advice on how to manage these groups.
