Welcome to episode 56 of my Culture Leadership Charge video series.
I’m often asked about the best books for leaders interested in learning about work culture. These are my top selections!
You’ll see a consistent theme across these books: they emphasize values as the best way to create a purposeful, positive, productive work culture.
My recommendations include:
- Values Clarification by Sidney Simon, Leland Howe, and Howard Kirschenbaum, published in 1972.
- Built to Last by Jim Collins and Jerry Porras, published in 1994.
- Gung Ho by Ken Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles, published in 1998.
- The Culture Engine by yours truly, published in 2014.
This holiday season – and any time of year – these books are a terrific, inspiring source of clear, proven recommendations for creating a work culture where values are as important as results.
In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, you’ll learn why these books are my recommended tools for leaders to learn how to create purposeful, positive, productive work cultures.
My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.
Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
