My Favourite Resources!

I have been foolishly promising the delivery of my favourite resources to the good leaders of Spotify for some time now. And when I finally sat down to do it all I could think was... well, what are they then?

Some of you may have noticed my fascination with neuroscience. :-) I do indeed love the addition of the brain into conversations about leadership. It puts words to why we do what we do, what drives us and what causes us pain. Many of my chosen books or links here reflect that.

Here are the top 10... and then some. In no particular order:

  1. To Sell is Human: the Surprising Truth about Moving Others
  2. Mindset: the New Psychology of Success
  3. Anything about neuroscience... like this goodie
  4. Amy Cuddy and her power-posing (this finds me standing Wonder Woman style in many a meeting)
  5. And speaking of Ted Talks: How great leaders inspire action: Simon Sinek
  6. The Tipping Point- Malcolm Gladwell (Outliers and Blink by Gladwell are fascinating as well)
  7. Drive- by Daniel Pink (or A Whole New Mind)
  8. The Power of Habits
  9. The Advantage: Peter Lencioni
  10. The Fifth Discipline: Senge
  11. and another: Sivers' Leadership Lessons from a Dancing Guy

For Team-Building
1. The Big Book of Virtual Team-Building
2. Gamestorming (a must)

I have a pile of other favourites around learning and how the learning organisation will adapt in the future... but I take those at another time! 
Chris- over and out!
