I enjoy reading business books built upon research and data, which is why I enjoy ‘Good to Great’ by Jim Collins.
He and his team do an excellent job of identifying the similarities and strengths amongst 11 companies that grew their stock at least three times in 15 years. His insights about great leadership and their interest in leaving a legacy is much the way I see top leaders – they care about what comes next – not about themselves.
Most of the leaders he studied were intrigued with others – and improving the business community and social communities around them. What he learned about great leaders is quite intuitive in the role that I see leaders needing to play in their organizations.
