Des Moines Public Library business book pick: “Trust & Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others” by Stephen M.R. Covey.
Why you should read it: Author Steven M.R. Covey’s latest book offers simple yet bold solutions to flip the ideas and concepts of leadership on its head – from “command and control” to “trust and inspire.” People don’t want to be managed, they want to be led, Covey argues, and he shows how organizations can make choices that lead to radical, positive shifts in the way to lead in a new modern workplace.
