Like finance, building & scaling a company AIN'T taught in schools and frankly, I'm not a natural at it! So, I decided to read the legendary business book High Output Management and guess what- you’re reading it too!! We are a BOOK CLUB. That’s how it freaking works.
I cannot tell you how much I need this book right now. I am learning to delegate tasks for the first time ever and it’s hard!! Mrs. Dow Jones is my baby. I’m a little precious with her... But I know I have to give up control and let other people in if I want to scale so here we are.
Even if you don’t have a start-up or aren’t managing anyone at your job- this book is still bae. It’s written by employee number three at INTEL, Andrew Grove. He has got so much wisdom like literally Oprah is shaking. Ok yay. Last one to order this book on Amazon is a rotten egg!
The essential skill of creating and maintaining new businesses—the art of the entrepreneur—can be summed up in a single word: managing. Born of Grove’s experiences at one of America’s leading technology companies, High Output Management is equally appropriate for sales managers, accountants, consultants, and teachers, as well as CEOs and startup founders. Grove covers techniques for creating highly productive teams, demonstrating methods of motivation that lead to peak performance—throughout, High Output Management is a practical handbook for navigating real-life business scenarios and a powerful management manifesto with the ability to revolutionize the way we work.
