Recommended Reads
I just finished reading "The Leadership Pipeline" and I loved it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to climb the corporate latter. It clearly defines the roles that you must play as you transition through different leadership positions in your career. One (of the many) things that stuck out to me was that when one transitions from "Managing Yourself" to "Managing Others" many people think that the same values will help them succeed. When in fact - You have to completely change your values, time allocations, and function. When a manager is not acting in line with their position (whether under or over it) they become a road block to themselves, their employees, and their company. It helped me as a manager, as well as someone who wants to continue to progress through the pipeline. This book really motivated me to want to empower my employees and help them succeed as much as I can. If anyone reads it, let me know what you think!! Happy Thursday Lovelies :)
