Not Your Average Summer Beach Reads

As you load up your e-readers and tote bags with the books you’ve been meaning to catch up on when “things slow down,” please allow me to add a few more recommendations to your lists. These are the books I still think about most long after I’ve put them down:

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

This may be the most compelling book I’ve read.  You’ll learn some amazing things you’ll want to adopt—and some you’ll never adopt.

Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek

Drive more inspired leadership by focusing on the core reasons your firm does what it does.

Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior by Rorke Denver

A striking look at how balance and calm play a vital role in any situation—especially high-stakes situations.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t also recommend a couple of other additions to your library:

Clientelligence: How Superior Client Relationships Fuel Growth and Profits by Michael Rynowecer

Learn how to drive growth and develop the best relationships with clients—based on in-depth research with 14,000 top decision makers who hire professional services firms.

The Mad Clientist’s ABCs of Client Service by Michael Rynowecer

This fully illustrated book is a light-hearted look at a deadly serious skill: learning how to improve client service.

Enjoy!
