Summer Reading List for Managers and Leaders

July 14, 2013, by Stephanie Messier | Performance Management

What’s better than spending a day at the beach with a good book?  Okay, the weather hasn’t exactly been beach friendly lately and these are not beach novels, but rather business topics.   In one of our previous blogs we had mentioned that managers should try and read at least one new business book per quarter.  Here’s what’s made our list of business books we have either read or are planning to read:

  • The Power of Simplicity – by Jack Trout

  • Egonomics – David Marcum and Stephen B. Smith
