    Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

    Story
    What did you like best about The Lean Startup? What did you like least?

    Decent ideas, nothing exceptional. It won't make you suddenly become an Apple...


    What three words best describe Eric Ries’s voice?

    Minimum viable product.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Lean Startup?

    I'm not sure. I will certainly keep the main concepts in mind, but I think anyone should know when to "pivot or persevere."

  • Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't

    Story

    Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Leaders Eat Last the most enjoyable?

    The author covers a very important and pervasive topic. His approach, from a biological/ sociological perspective is insightful. This book put the elements of a great leader into concrete terms, which reinforces what I have learned and experienced as a veteran.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The topic and the author's approach to the topic.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Sinek’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Sinek's other works, but I am looking forward to doing so.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone in a position of responsibility over people should read this book.
