Leaders Read#24



👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "High Output Management" by Andrew S. Grove.


Written in 1995, this might be the most practical book for middle management. It felt like Intel CEO Andrew Grove decided to sit down and write the day-to-day tactics and responsibilities for his middle managers.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"Much confusion exists between what strategy and what is tactics. Although the distinctions are rarely of practical significance. Frequently, a strategy at one managerial level is the tactical concern of the next higher level."


✅ Actionable advice:

For many, especially new leaders, "Strategy" seems like some utterly complicated sorcery that really experienced leaders do. It is not. If you want to lose ten pounds, your "Strategy" could be choosing healthier food, and your tactic could be only eating carbs on Saturdays. The best strategy tool is called SWOT. Take pen and paper, and write your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. Now, look at the four areas and write what you think is the best way forward. That's strategy.
