Management Library

BizBuilder Idea: Management Library. "Leaders are Readers." A proven idea is the creation of an in-house management library of books, and audio programs for those with lengthy drive times. Assign X number of books to be covered per year as part of a manager's recertification. A further approach would be to do a one paragraph prescription gleaned from the material that that manager feels would benefit his team to which it is emailed. Yield: A tremendous uplift in management literacy.

To get you started here are some books by others that we like and are old school "core" management reading. These books are handled offsite at Amazon.
