We must be creative and innovative in our organizations but perhaps more importantly, in working on ourselves.

It means we step out of our comfort zones and take strategic and intentional steps even before the path comes into full view. HessLearn or Die is a book everyone who is serious about learning and growtha€”personally or organizationallya€”should read. KotterFor most companies, the hierarchy is the singular operating system at the heart of the firm.
He said, a€?Officers eat last.a€? Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line.
It is structured so that you can thoughtfully and tactically look at each of these areas to see where you can better prepare yourself. What Scott Eblin does is guide you in learning to work differently a€” mindfully a€” so you are more clear about the results that most merit your time and attention and how you need to show up to offer your highest and best contributions as a professional and as a person.
Leadership Blindspots helps you to see the various ways we fail to see ourselves and our actions accurately and how we can put mechanisms in place to prevent the filtering and distortion of information for ourselves and our organizations.
Isaacson makes the point that innovation happens in the real world by teams and not lone geniuses. The author writes, a€?I place his story in his times and describe the events and personalities that affected him. We cana€™t see around every corner, but we can listen more purposefully, think more critically, and see more clearly.
If you thought you were serious about it, Learn or Die will take you to a whole new level with tools, case studies, and insights that will challenge your commitment to learning. But the reality is, this system simply is not built for an environment where change has become the norm.

Shipwrecks, human sacrifice, hairbreadth escapes, unbridled sex, battles on land and at sea, ambushes, family scandals, and above all the unforgiving pursuit of absolute power.
John Kotter advocates a new systema€”a second, more agile, network-like structure that operates in concert with the hierarchy to create what he calls a a€?dual operating systema€?a€”one that allows companies to capitalize on rapid-fire strategic challenges and still make their numbers. Wiseman says, a€?We do our best work when we are new to something, striving up that steep ascent.a€? We need to be a perpetual rookie. In a world where far too many leaders are looking out for themselves, Sinek offers numerous insights about the kind of sacrifice required to be a great leader.
Questions, examples, additional thoughts and action steps help you access where you are at and what you might need to do next.
Isaacson examines too the role of the organizational forms within which innovation takes placea€”like Bell Labs. While his best qualities were seen on the field of battle, you will find much you can learn from his leadershipa€”both good and bad. Augustus lived out an extraordinary and often terrifying drama.a€?
