Great question @CorinneMansour!

Personally, I love Simon Senik’s “Start With Why”. I am sure you have read it, but its a faourtite of mine, I have it on audio and listen when im stuck in traffic. I learn something new each time.

I know its an oldy but a goody - I really got so much out of The E-myth by Michael Gerber years ago and I pick it up every now and then. I also love “One Bite at a Time” by David Brewster & Gary Calwell and my new favourite is Creating a Customer Service Mindset by Jacquie Scammell. There are loads of others too, but these stick in my mind.

Thanks so much @ashley.giles & @terrihandy definitely grabbing a couple of those this week.

There is a great book called “Good to Great” by Jim Collins. It discusses why some large, publicly traded companies were good versus those that were great in the same field (say drugs stores compared to the others).

I read this one @CorinneMansour many years ago and found it to be quite simple yet motivating.

I love a good Covey book… I first read this when I was 15… (I was not a very effective person then but that is a different story.)

Great choice @adam.
