I'm always on the prowl for sources of profound insight. At my leadership workshop last week, I noticed the instructor had a wealth of practical insights and distinctions that aren't common knowledge. I asked him his favorite sources of information and he listed two:
I was surprised because I had never read either before (the titles weren't appealing to me.) I picked them up this week and it looks like they're packed with lessons learned and news I can use. I think of The Economist as sharing business and organizational practices. I think of Harvard Business Review as personal development applied to the workplace. Here's a sample of some of the titles from this month's Harvard Business Review:
- "A Leader's Framework for Decision Making"
- "Solve the Succession Crisis by Growing Inside-Outside Leaders"
- "Eight Ways to Build Collaborative Teams"
- "Mapping Your competitive Position"
- "Cognitive Fitness"
- "Simple Rules for Making Alliances Work"
- "Are Your Engineers Talking to One Another When They Should?"
