Ready to lead?
I just finished Alan Price’s ‘Ready to lead?’ on a flight down to Philly and I recommend it. Very quick and easy to read, it follows the journey of a management consultant experiencing growing pains in his career while making making the leap from manager to leader. Perhaps it’s just the timing for me, but there were a lot of great lessons I strongly identified with.
A couple of key takeaways I want to write down so I remember them better:
- Don’t take anything for granted. Make decisions based on the best possible information.
- Invest in people.
- We’re all making it up as we go along. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
