5 of the Best Books on Leadership as Recommended by GE Executives
I discovered a short reading list on GE Capital’s website. Here’s what it says: “There are a lot of business books out there, and you probably have some on your reading list. Which are the best? Top GE executives have recommended the best books on leadership. Each book provides insights for your business life and provokes fresh ways of thinking.”
True, it’s sounds a bit corporate-y, but I like the selections. Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals is a perennial pick. Proctor & Gamble Chairman, President, and CEO A. G. Lafley recommended Team of Rivals in a list he provided to 250 Words earlier this year. Eric Ries’ The Lean Start Up is also a popular selection for executives–especially executives in the tech industry. If you’re interested in The Smartest Kids in the World, check out Amanda Ripley’s reading selections for “anyone interested in education.”
