Summary:
When leaders understand The Pit of Success their burdens are lifted and their ability to learn and succeed is increased. Leaders must routinely face challenges that are beyond their experience. In this space they feel lost, confused, and overwhelmed. These doubts are shared by leaders across the globe but many fear it is not "leader-like" to discuss such issues. Yet, leaders are not in their job because they have all the answers. They are in the job to find answers. By learning to navigate The Pit of Success leaders gain confidence, find answers, and deliver results faster and with less anxiety. The Pit of Success provides leaders with the mindset and skillset to do things they do not know how to do. It gives them principles for managing progressively difficult challenges throughout their career. It also gives them peace of mind that they are not the only ones experiencing these doubts. No longer do leaders need to wonder if they are good enough to face the challenges in front of them. What they need to do is learnable and The Pit of Success shows them how they are fully capable to succeed in their demanding situation. The concept of The Pit of Success has already changed 1000s of leader's lives around the world.

Summary:
"We have a leadership crisis today, where even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most organizations, teams, schools, and families today still operate from a model of "command and control," focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, this way of leading is drastically outdated. Stephen M.R. Covey has made it his life's work to understand trust in leadership and organizations. In his newest and most transformative book, Trust and Inspire, he offers a simple yet bold solution: to shift from this "command and control" model to a leadership style of "trust and inspire." People don't want to be managed; they want to be led. Trust and Inspire is a new way of leading that starts with the belief that people are creative, collaborative, and full of potential. People with this kind of leader are inspired to become the best version of themselves and to produce their best work. In this "beautifully written page-turner" (Amy Edmondson, Harvard Business School professor), Covey offers the solution to the future of work: where a dispersed workforce will be the norm, necessitating trust and collaboration across time zones, cultures, personalities, generations, and technology. Trust and Inspire calls for a radical shift in the way we lead in the 21st century, and Covey shows us how."

Summary:
""We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. It's not right that the experience of work should be so demotivating and dehumanizing." So says Laszlo Bock, head of People Operations at the company that transformed how the world interacts with knowledge. This insight is the heart of WORK RULES!, a compelling and surprisingly playful manifesto with the potential to change how we work and live. Drawing on the latest research in behavioral economics and with a profound grasp of human psychology, Bock also provides teaching examples from a range of industries -- including companies that are household names but hideous places to work, and little-known companies that achieve spectacular results by valuing and listening to their employees. Bock takes us inside one of history's most explosively successful businesses to reveal why Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work in the world, distilling 15 years of intensive worker R&D into delightfully counterintuitive principles that are easy to put into action, whether you're a team of one or a team of thousands. Cleaving the knot of conventional management, some lessons from WORK RULES! include: Take away managers' power over employees Learn from your best employees - and your worst Only hire people who are smarter than you are, no matter how long it takes to find them Pay unfairly (it's fairer!) Don't trust your gut: use data to predict and shape the future Default to open: be transparent, and welcome feedback If you're comfortable with the amount of freedom you've given your employees, you haven't gone far enough WORK RULES! shows how to strike a balance between creativity and structure, leading to success you can measure in quality of life as well as market share. Read it to build a better company from within rather than from above; read it to reawaken your joy in what you do. "--
