News & Opinion: Ahoy Matey!

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:15 PM – Filed under: Leadership & Strategy

Books come in all shapes and sizes. Some you expect great information out of and they never deliver and others may look like they wouldn't be even worth the time to open the cover. This paperback from Corner Stone press, may not win any Pulitzer prizes or teach anyone something they don't already think they know. What it will do is give you a different view on leadership tactics in a very unique way. Its name? Lead Like a Pirate! Leadership Secrets of the Pirates of St. Croix . I think it has something to bring to table in a unique and off the beaten 'treasure map' way.
You be the judge:

Again, like I mentioned, it's not astounding, groundbreaking or earth shattering. There are simple explanations of what it takes to be a good leader and tests along the way to see how you would fit in as 'captain of your own ship'. I liked this because by taking itself not so seriously, the reader can just have fun with the business world. It'd make a great stocking stuffer (especially for the CEOs that you think have everything).
Just a thought, an odd quirky thought, but a thought just the same!
