Leaders Read#42


👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:


This week's book is "Seeking Wisdom: From Darwin to Munger" by Peter Bevelin.


This is my first book diving into the topic "Mental Models." I enjoyed the book; each section contains a lot of practical wisdom. It is a compilation of Poor Charlie's Almanac, Nassim Taleb, Warren Buffet, and Charlie Munger.


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

"Decision-makers should be held accountable for the consequences of their actions. Charles Munger said:" An example of a really responsible system is the system of Romans used when they built an arch. The guy who created the arch stood under it as the scaffolding was removed. It's like packing your own parachute."


✅ Actionable advice:

When leaders take responsibility for their decisions, it fosters a culture of accountability. President Truman has the famous note on his desk, "The buck stops here." Taking responsibility is the essence of good leadership. You can't be a good leader without also owning the responsibility. You can, however, add transparency to your leadership and invite the potential for someone to challenge a wrong decision.
