I read The Leadership Pipeline: How to Build the Leadership Powered Company in about 2 hours, which means I gathered most of what I needed with a quick scan. This is geared towards big company executive development but there are some good lessons in there regarding the transition from managing individual contributors to managing other managers.
Don’t bother with Jocko Willink’s Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual as it is a poorly written, poorly formatted, shallow treatment of some simple concepts like “wake up early, eat clean, and work out.”
What I’m Playing
I worked in two different Advanced Squad Leadersessions over the past two weeks and will be playing again tomorrow. I’m joining an online league for beginners which will allow me to mix up my playing partners more, hopefully leading to more learning and tactical improvement.
