Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

Starting with WHY as detailed in the reading will change how you approach your goals and allows you to stay mindful of the real reason you are working towards that goal.

A quick view into the motivational and leadership genius that was Steve Jobs. We are probably living beneath our abilities. He didn't.

SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else.

Wasn't impressed with this content. Not much compelling material. The topics also lack meaningful connections. Global warming and doctors not washing hands probably the biggest focus.

  • Why Are We Bad at Picking Good Leaders?

Almost 70% of Americans believe that we are suffering from a crisis of leadership, but rather than asking, why are leaders failing, we need to ask, "Why aren't we choosing better leaders?" Ever wonder what goes on behind closed board room doors when organizations pick their top leaders? It can be a contentious, secretive, even brutal process. Most of our leaders look good on paper - they have charisma, credentials, and confidence - yet they lack the real qualities that are necessary to succeed. In Why Are We Bad at Picking Good Leaders?, Cohn and Moran share the same insights and ideas they use to help organizations.

Narrator was good. Content better. I would recommend this title to someone interested in developing leadership or assessing potential in others.
