Measure What Matters – John Doerr

Readers are Leaders. When you read, some books leave a lasting impact on you and will help  change life (or) company habits. Measure What Matters, John Doerr is one such book.

Measure What Matters – John Doerr

We have had quarterly goals at DCKAP and been doing it for a few years. The same has had a big impact to our organization’s productivity. One thing we didn’t do was set Goals for the CEO (though a few employees asked about it). I thought my goals need not be shared and could be kept personal for me to track. After reading John’s book, one of the first things I did was publish my goal on the company forum.  Everyone in the company knows what our priorities are and will focus on the right things. read more

The Virgin Way , Richard Branson

Thanks to Aliso Viejo, CA Library, got to read The Virgin Way, by  Richard Branson. When you run a business or manage a team , reading books like The Virgin Way is inspiring and also teaches you business lessons.

Taking notes & listening:  Even if you are a CEO, listen more and take notes during any meeting – this is a great lesson learnt reading this book. Often times during meetings we tend to interrupt (thinking we look smarter) – however it makes the person on the other end of the meeting look bad. I have interrupted teammates  multiple times.  Instead take notes and when the other person completes his conversation, address the questions or maybe they would have answered your questions already. Go to the employees work place and discuss, you will learn more (rather than having them come to your place). I remember reading this in another book. Listening & Taking notes makes you look smart and is also very effective. read more

The Only Investment Guide you’ll ever need – Andrew Tobias

The Only Investment Guide you ‘ll ever need by Andrew Tobias  is easily one of the best books I have ever read. Most of the investment/finance books are complex and hard to understand. I started reading one earlier and could not complete it (stayed away from finance books for a while). However this Investment guide is very simple and easy to understand. Reading this was like watching a fast paced movie and could not take my hands off it.

I have heard about a lot of things Andrew mentions in his book in the past. However never took it seriously. The simple way Andrew has presented it made me understand things better and forced me to take a look at my life-style and investments. read more
