The Ten Best Business Books I’ve Read Lately

I’ve been traveling a lot from West Coast to East Coast, so I’ve had plenty of time to reinvigorate my reading discipline this year. Here are the ten best business books I’ve read this year:

1. The Carrot Principle: How the Best Managers Use Recognition to Engage Their People, Retain Talent and Accelerate Performance. by Robert Gostick and Chester Elton

2. A Slice of Trust: The Leadership Secret with the Hot and Fruity Filling.  by Barry Rellaford and (one of my best friends) David Hutchens

3. The Elephant in the Room: How Relationships Make or Break the Success of Leaders and Organizations. by Diana McClain Smith

4. Drive. by Daniel Pink. A re-examination of everything you think about what motivates employees. And it’s not money.

5. Your Company Sucks: It’s Time to Declare War on Yourself. by Mark Stevens

6. The Great Stagnation: How America Ate the Low-Hanging Fruit of Modern History, Got Sick, and Will (Eventually) Feel Better. by Tyler Cowen

7. That Used to Be Us. by Thomas Friedman. A look at the forces that made America great, and that we must recover if we are to lead in the 21st century.

8. Raving Fans. by Ken Blanchard. A dated but still as relevant as ever look at creating customer enthusiasts.

9. The Nordstrom Way: The Inside Story of America’s #1 Customer Service Company. by Robert Spector and Patrick D. McCarthy

10. Revolutionize Your Customer Experience. by Colin Shaw

  1. I would like to show some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of trouble. Just after surfing around throughout the world-wide-web and getting ideas that were not powerful, I thought my entire life was gone. Existing without the presence of approaches to the issues you have fixed by way of this guideline is a serious case, and the ones that might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not come across the blog. The talents and kindness in maneuvering every item was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I can now relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the skilled and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to endorse the website to any individual who should receive counselling about this subject.
