News & Opinion: Biz Book Chat with Jon and Michael

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 7:40 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Today, Michael and I took two books we've been looking at, and shared an interesting point from each. The books are, Practice Perfect: 42 Rules for Getting Better at Getting Better by Doug Lemov, Erica Woolway and Katie Yezzi, and Beating the Global Odds: Successful Decision Making in a Confused and Troubled World.

Both of the books offer advice on simplifying and improving one's approach to decision making, innovation, and leadership. Although we've only pointed out a nugget from each, we hope this is enough to pique your interest, rather than offering an entire, long overview of what the book is about. Play the video below to hear more.

We'll continue to offer longer-form reviews here at the blog, peppered with posts like this offering more concise examinations of specific points from the book. Hope you enjoy.
