Leaders Read#25

👋 Hello everyone,

Well-aligned with our book of the week. Check out this list of book recommendations from people you admire.


📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "The On-Purpose Business Person" by Kevin W. McCarthy.

This book is an easy read. The book is in a story format, following a newly appointed CEO who has taken over a struggling company from "the old man." He is introduced to a network of On-Purpose people who guide him through the steps to renew his company by making it an On-Purpose business.

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

"Write down the names of at least five men and women whom you admire. Next, write down their most admirable personal characteristics. You’re making a list, so write freely. “Next, make another list and record the qualities you most and least admire about yourself. Write next to each of the negative qualities its opposite, or positive, quality. Now, you have a list of positive qualities in others and yourself that you admire. “Pick ten qualities you would like to advance or increase in your life and organization. You now have the raw materials to fashion a set of values. Ta-da!”

✅ Actionable advice:

The exercise above is a powerful life hack. You have probably used the "What would [insert powerful person here] do" in a life-challenging crisis. However, in the exercise above, you elevate the "panic button" moment to a powerful thread that you can grow and guide you, even in times of calm.
