“So many people go to work with an uncomfortable feeling—and that just can’t be the way work is supposed to be,” says Simon Sinek. Talking about the concepts in his latest book, The Infinite Game, he explains how things such as mass layoffs and shareholder supremacy (placing stock prices above a person’s worth) seem to be so common these days that we have come to accept them. Sinek believes this situation can change if leaders understand they are playing an infinite game.
The "How-Not-To" Leadership Book
There is a paradox in leadership: we can only succeed by knowing failure. Every accomplished leader knows there are minefields of failures that need to be navigated in order to succeed. Wouldn’t it be great to have the insights to help you prevent avoidable mistakes? Unfortunately, in business talking about mistakes can be taboo, and, at a certain level, learning from failure is not an option. In The Wisdom of Failure, Weinzimmer and McConoughey speak frankly about the things that are difficult to talk about—the unvarnished truths necessary to become a successful leader. Based on a groundbreaking 7-year study of almost 1000 managers across 21 industries and exclusive interviews with CEOs at a wide range of organizations including Caterpillar, Priceline.com and Allstate, the book uncovers the strategies that aspiring leaders need in order to avoid the three most damning leadership mistakes: unbalanced orchestration, “drama” management, and personality issues.
