There are near infinite amounts of books about business concepts and personal productivity. With that much volume it can be hard to find a good read on a topic you are interested in. Below are some books the team and I have found to be useful and links to Amazon if you want to pick up a copy.

Traction – The first book in a larger movement around creating an operating system for businesses. Gino Wickman lays out a commonsense approach to running a company in an efficient and interesting manner.

Midas Managers – The title is a little misleading, this book is about small company finance and unlocking the value of your business. It breaks down how businesses are priced and why some companies are more valuable than others. It also suggests managers look at their companies and focus on core competencies to maximize profit and reduce risk. The stories Rob Slee tells are interesting and applicable to many privately owned businesses.

Atomic Habits – Absolutely love this book. James Clear breaks down how your habits define who you are and that setting up good habits is the only way to achieve the outcomes you desire. This book is a must-read for those who are new to the work force and the rest of us can benefit from it as well.

Essentialism – If you are feeling worn out and tired of running in circles, Greg McKeown lays out a path to freedom. This book encourages readers to cut out non-essential activities in life that are sucking time without adding value for anyone. Saying no is OK and most people will respect you more for being up-front.

Happy reading and as always reach out if you’d like to discuss any of these books.
