When I thought it was all about me, I read these four books. One is about how to make meetings work, another about how to write reports. The other two are about how to be more confident. I thought that if I could improve myself, my team and my organisation would improve.
These 4 books didn’t change my life.
These four books did change my life! These books; ‘Systems thinking in the Public Sector’, ‘The New Economics’, ‘The Spirit Level’ and ‘Delusions of Gender’ teach you about the power of system and context. Their message is that we (managers and governments mainly) should ‘act on the system’ if we want to improve ourselves and our organisations for the better.
