Father’s Day: A time to relax … and read!

I came across this list while looking at a local news Web site for the Philadelphia area where our office is located. It drew my eye instantly because the top pick on this list is a book that has been popular among our subscribers since it was first featured in our June 2007 edition. What Got You Here Won’t Get You There is leadership expert Marshall Goldsmith’s exploration of the nuances that separate the top echelon of leaders from the masses.

This got me thinking about other summaries we’ve done that might be a good fit for dads everywhere this Father’s Day. How about The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins? If your dad is new to management, this book could be a great way to help him get off to a good start. In light of the fact that companies are trying to do more work with less members of staff, people of all ages are being placed in new roles all the time.

Another great book for dads is High Altitude Leadershipby Chris Warner and Don Schmincke. This recent summary is as entertaining as it is informative. Where else can you get leadership advice from a pair of authors, one of whom is a master strategist, the other of whom is one of a handful of Americans to successfully summit Mount Everest and K2? It’s a summary that reads as well while laying in the hammock as it does while sitting behind a desk. 

Then again, you could always go the extra mile and give dad a subscription to Soundview Executive Book Summaries.

Happy Father’s Day to dads everywhere!
