Good To Great

Good to great by Jim Collins, what an amazing book to read.  I am half way through.  Many companies can become good it is not a big deal but only few companies can become great.  Jim has done excellent research to give some valuable insight into these companies.

Few insights from the book.

1.) When you need to make a people change, Act.

2.) People are not your greatest asset but the right people are.

3.) It is about getting right people on the bus and wrong people off the bus.

4.) Great Leaders are not ego centric.  They always believe in the right people company has.

5.) Put your best people on your biggest opportunities, not your biggest problems.

6.) If you feel the need to tightly manage someone, then you have made a hiring mistake.

This book is a must for everyone.
