Best Five Leadership and Management Books

A friend and former associate at Juris, Inc. just let me know that he had ordered a copy of The Language of Excellence.

Like most successful business people, he has a library of books on management and leadership. Many have a list of their favorites. One of the smartest people that I have every met is Gary Slaughter, AKA the man who saved the world. He has a “best five” list and it includes The Language of Excellence.

Here is what Slaughter has to say about the book:

“Over the past fifty years, I’ve devoured dozens of leadership and management books. In fact, I’ve also taught hundreds of leadership and management workshops to Fortune 500 corporate executives.
In my judgement, The Language of Excellence by Tom Collins is among the best five books I have ever read on this subject.The other four include these classics:

The Motivation to Work by Fredrick Herzberg
The Practice of Management by Peter Drucker
On Becoming a Leader by Warren Bennis
The Transformational Leader by Noel Tichy

Moreover, The Language of Excellence replaced One Minute Manager on by ‘best five’ list. OMM, written in 1982 by Ken Blanchard and Spenser Johnson has sold over 13 million copies and been translated into 37 different languages, Despite OMM’s popularity, The Language of Excellence is far more informative and easy to apply.”
