A chance to catch up on much-needed reading to refresh and recharge your standards and leadership style scoured this lists of books that look at life and work in a whole new way. While these books are not your typical newest releases, they have timeless value and are best read together to rejuvenate yourself and, by extension, your team.
The review by Rebecca Talbot, Content Marketing & Research Manager & Leadership Story Lab sais:
Feeling comfortable in our workplace can have its downsides. It’s easy to fall into patterns and make assumptions about the people we spend our days with.”
The Coaching Habit by Michael Bungay Stanier offers a way to get beyond our assumptions about our coworkers’ behavior and learn their stories instead. Stanier’s short book explores seven questions managers can use to get people talking, and to train themselves to avoid thinking they “already know” what’s motivating people. His first question is simply:
What’s on your mind?

When we are willing to start our conversations with an open-ended question, the answers might surprise us!And that’s Stanier’s whole point-that we need to approach each other with far more curiosity.
The “what’s on your mind” question resonated with me because it is a question my dad used to ask me often when I was a teenager. The respect and curiosity implied in the question worked well to encourage a teenager to talk.
Likewise, family, friends and colleagues generally need an invitation before they will share what’s been important to them lately. Now that Stanier has reminded of that, I’ll be using this question more frequently and to that meaning find irresistible reading suggestions on new different ways of thinking as the following highlights. Find out more! Books are the only thing you can buy that gives you wealth and wisdom.

No tyrant or slave driver in the ecstasy of his most delirious dream ever sought to place upon abject slaves a condition more repugnant.

There’s small space for Taylor’s thoughts in today’s world of freewheeling collaboration. But the works of individuals such as Michael Doorman and Michael Pound, with their accentuation on breaking commerce down into quantifiable (and controllable) exercises, hold more than a swoon resound of Taylor’s thoughts.

Taylor was the first man in history who did not take work for granted, but looked at it and studied it. His approach to work is still the basic foundation.

All sorts of organisations use the vocabulary of strategy. Compare these extracts from the statements of communications giants Nokia and Kingston University, a public institution based in London with 200.000 students.

“Nokia’s vision and mission believes in communicating, sharing, and in the awesome potential in connecting the 2 billion who do with 4 bilion who don’t. Connecting is about helping people to feel close to what matters.”

If we focus on people, and use technology to help people, than growth will follow. In a world where everyone can be connected, Nokia takes a human approach to technology.
Nokia’s priority is to be the most proffered partner to operators , retailers and enterprises. A strategy where customers remain our top priority.

There is an old-fashioned word for the body of skills. Character, writes Amitai Etzioni, the George Washington University, social theorist, is the

Psychological muscle that moral conduct requires.”

The bedrock of character is self-discipline, the virtuous life, since Aristotel have observed, is based on self-control. A related keystone of character is being able to motivate and guide ourselves, whether in doing homework, finishing a job, or getting up in the morning. As we have seen the ability to channel one’s urges to act is a basic emotional skill, one that in a former day was called will.

We need to be in control of ourselves – our appetites, our passions to do right by others”,

notes Tomas Lickona, writing about character education.

It takes will to keep emotion under the control of reason.”

Being able to put aside one’s self-centered focus and impulses has social benefits, opens the way to empathy, to real listening. to another person’s perspective. Empathy as we have seen, leads to caring, altruism and compassion.

Seeing things from another’s perspective breaks down biases stereotypes, and so breads tolerance and acceptance of differences.

These capacities are ever more called on in our increasingly pluralistic society, allowing people to live together in mutual respect and creating the possibility of productive public discourse. Theses are basic arts of democracy.
