We have three recommendations that are guaranteed to make your next commute a lot more entertaining:
1. “Überpreneurs” by Peter Andrews and Fiona Wood
Überpreneurs are heroes who work to solve the world’s greatest problems and improve the lives of millions. Among those thought leaders are Mo Ibrahim, Jeff Bezos – Founder of Amazon, Bill Gates – from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, James Oliver (“The Naked Chef”), and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus.
2. “Thought Leadership” by Laurie Young
This summary explains why the best thought leadership derives from great strategy, specific goals and deliberate planning. The author uses lessons learned through history to offer advice to companies whose goal is to become a “thought leader” without much risk to their hard-earned reputations:
- Understand and research their audience.
- Develop formal product internally and then have a limited release.
- Float a new idea by testing it in blogs or short articles.
- Package into collateral material.
- Don’t let sales drive the process (don’t mix with sales; loses impact and credibility).
- Don’t delegate to junior staff; ensure qualified reputable people (experts; writers; researchers; marketers).
