Books for Business

It may be hard to admit, but perhaps it’s been a while since we picked up and read a good book. It might have been even longer since we have read a business book that can help us in office life. Books are wonderful resources for improving oneself and one’s business. Here are four books that anyone in business can benefit from reading. 

 

Turn This Ship Around 

by L. David Marquet 

A fantastic resource for learning about empowering leadership in the business world, Fortune Magazine called this book “The best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution.” It helps that the author was a former submarine captain!

 

The Innovator’s Dilemma 

by Clayton M. Christensen 

Strategy is vital for a business to be successful, and this is the aim of The Innovator’s Dilemma. Christensen challenges conventional wisdom business may have and shows when it is time to veer off the normal business path. This book explains about disruptive innovation and why companies fail when they ignore this concept.

 

Good to Great 

by Jim Collins 

Good to Great goes into depth about how great companies are able to sustain success over long periods of time. Collins also focuses on success from companies that were not born to be successful right away. This is a great read to see how good companies, mediocre companies, and even bad companies can capture and endure greatness over time.

 

Awaken the Giant Within 

by Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins breaks down how we can master our emotions, our work relationships, and our finances. This is a wonderful book for empowering ourselves to take control of everything in our life. We all have goals, but this is a perfect resource for helping us to focus to achieve our ambitions.
