Books That Every Manager Should Read

Reading books not just a behavior to kill your free times, but also the tool that make you realize of yourself, everyone and everything around you and also give you some tips to improve your day-to-day life better.

Reading books it doesn’t mean that you’re stupid or lack of knowledge, it is a good behavior and knowing yourself, and which position you are at.

Some people they don’t like to read the books and claim they know everything. Some believes that reading is nothing, but action is something that should have done. Some believes that reading is just a behavior to show people around you that you’re high educated person. Honestly, reading should have bounded with action. However, there would no right action if you don’t read.

These books that I think every manager should have read:

1. How to motivate every employee by Anne Bruche: This book is very important to those who have direct subordinates or direct reports. In this book, the writer show you short and good tips for you easy to imagine and utilize it to actions.

Good Managers – Means Something More Than Just Pointing

There are so many kind of managers, there are some good and boring managers. But to become a good manager would never been easy. It needs skills, leaderships, management skills and relationships. Most of managers are leading their company/staffs with their real experiences, their skill and their guidance. They leads people by examples.

Leadership is really important, but it is just about of having it. It is about how will we lead the people with skills and respect. To get the respect from staffs, a leader needs think and work a lot, not just sitting and pointing them to do things without any clear guidance.

These are some tips that I’ve learned:

  1. Listening: A leader need to have a very good active listening skill, not just arguing or fighting. Leader needs to listen their staff’s opinion really hard and thinking/exploring solutions. Feedbacks from staffs are really important because it is the way that lead leaders to the place they never do before. ” Listening and Thinking”….
  2. Planning: From the feedbacks of our staffs, let’s pick up the pen and list down possible solutions. No need to be perfect, but list down as much as you can. Sometimes, silly solutions contribute the best result.
  3. Execute the Plan: Discuss with staffs about the solutions you’ve listed and evaluate it. Execute it by you and your staffs together. You need to lead your staffs/team to do it, not just leave the plan to them. ” DO IT”…
  4. Celebration with your staffs/team: Reward or celebration the result with your staffs/team. This is the only chance for you to make very close relationship with your staffs, so don’t miss it.
  5. Motivation: It is very important. A good leader, he knows how to motivate people to do their job and to really looking for any other opportunities. Motivation means a lot. It can makes people contribute their result without any boring feeling or any complaining. They will work with their heart and their soul. The will put their everything on their work. So, please motivate your staffs no matter their commit mistakes or deliver results. “Motivate Them To Deliver What We and Team Wants”
