This week’s Resource Recommendation: Bury My Heart at Conference Room B: The Unbeatable Impact of Truly Committed Managersby Stan Slap.
This is fast becoming one of the most talked about business books of the year, and for some very good reasons.
It outlines different success factors than many other books do.
It comes from a pragmatic and real-life perspective.
It talks about things that often are overlooked and undersold – things like values and commitment.
It provides a framework and action steps for you to use what you are learning.
Bury My Heart at Conference Room B is a book that illuminates a process developed by Stan and his organization to help individual leaders draw out their core values and build greater commitment to organizational success. The book does a great job of using examples from their sessions and provides exercises for you to use personally – all honed from their work with 10,000 managers.
Because it deals with values and commitment, this book may challenge you. But it may also make you hopeful, joyful and see a new way to integrate who you are with what you do.
The book shows you how to do it, gives examples of many others who have done it, and proves why that is important personally and professionally.
This is not a book to buy because it is the cool next read. This is a book to read, reflect on and use.
One final note: I have arranged for a chance for you to win a copy of the book – at least one person from our list will win!. Use this link to learn more about what’s going on and to get your name in the hat.
