Hopefully, you know by now that reading broadly (and listening as well) is at the heart of becoming an effective leader. I’ve found the world of business to be rich with content that is right on point for what we’re all dealing with. So why not take advantage of what’s out there? After all, so much of it is free or very inexpensive.
I’ve got to say, one of my best discoveries lately is the Educators Corner. Sponsored by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, this a really great set of podcasts! I listened today to Joel Peterson on negotiation and it was fabulous. Peterson, a former managing partner with Trammell Crow, had some really helpful ideas to share. You can check out his talk here.
