OK, so I walk into the business section of my local bookstore and the titles on leadership/management technique are seemingly endless, and half or more of them seem to be the bestsellers.
Sift through the dross for me - what's the best advice / guidance / wisdom / et. al. you ever got - be it from a book or an alternative source. Book recommendations are fine but I'd like to understand why you are recommending it - what in it worked for you in real life? Give me some of the bait to get me hooked.
What tips and tricks helped you grow as a people leader, how did you execute them, and what happened?
