While some of us are naturally good at being leaders and managers, some of us are put into a situation where we need to be leaders and, hopefully, good managers. Thus, it’s best to brush up on your management skills to help manage employees and businesses without causing too many issues. While experience is one method to learn how to manage people, books can also be beneficial.

Similar to attending a class, books give you the basic knowledge you need to know how to keep everything in check. A good leader will know how to manage a large number of employees while also learning to delegate the work towards other people. If you’re going off of just experience, you can see how quickly this method could cause problems.

By picking up a good read on management skills, you can easily avoid issues that may occur off of learning by experience. Plus, you can develop long term strategies that can help you keep investors and business partners.

So, why should we read the best manager books? I find that leadership skills change every two to three years, so being ready for the upcoming years is essential.

I’ve tried to get away with pushing back books or avoiding extra classes. However, once I started to read the best books for managers, I noticed a massive difference in the way I was able to strategize.

What I’ve found in the books is that they teach you valuable skills. Some of these include ones that aren’t so obvious. Skills that they teach you are Networking, teamwork exercises, verbal skills, and how to recover from failure.

So, if you’re sick of attending classes, seminars or don’t have the time or patience for other forms of education, a book can definitely help. I find it more productive to learn at your own pace, especially for business. You can easily pick up a book on management and really focus on what it’s telling you.

La formación de un gerente: qué hacer cuando todos te miran

La formación de un gerente: qué hacer cuando todos te miran

I've seen so many people thrust into management in high-growth companies with so little guidance. From now on, I will hand them this book. Its practical wisdom is immediately useful for the newly minted manager — and us old ones.

Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager

Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager

Perhaps Managing Humans by Michael Lopp would be the most practical - it's a great read, and for people making the leap from developer to manager, it's full of useful advice.

Consejos de gestión: de Harvard Business Review

Consejos de gestión: de Harvard Business Review

Another favourite of mine, although is not like a real book, is Management Tips from Harvard Business Review. This is the handbook for every manager. It is full of actionable insights and the beauty of it is that you can apply them immediately. I always have it on me because each page contains a tip and I write the date on the page every time I use it. I promise you that using this system will supercharge your management powers in no time.

Three Nights in August: Strategy, Heartbreak, and Joy Inside the Mind of a Manager

Three Nights in August: Strategy, Heartbreak, and Joy Inside the Mind of a Manager

As a CEO, I have often thought about the balance of trusting data vs. gut in decision-making. I claim to be data-oriented, but in the moment, I often rely on my understanding of human nature. As I read about Tony La Russa’s maniacal focus on baseball’s mass of statistics, coupled with this nuanced understanding of his players and opponents, it was obvious that neither is enough on its own: The leader who truly understands the numbers will make the best gut decisions.

Administrarse a uno mismo

Administrarse a uno mismo

En "Managing Oneself" Peter Drucker habla sobre cómo diferentes personas tienen diferentes formas de recibir información. Me di cuenta de que escuchar es mucho más efectivo para mí que leer y, desde entonces, solo escucho audiolibros. Por cierto, ese libro es 100% gratuito en audible y es más corto que la mayoría de los podcasts. Bien vale la pena tu tiempo.

The Halo Effect: ... and the Eight Other Business Delusions That Deceive Managers

El efecto Halo: … y los otros ocho engaños comerciales que engañan a los gerentes

It questioned the delusions of business books and the pseudoscience that some use. It reminded me that the advice given in business books may not necessarily be right for you, your team, your business or the current situation.

Uncreative Writing: Managing Language in the Digital Age

Uncreative Writing: Managing Language in the Digital Age

I read it after I finished an MA in Writing and it was exactly what I needed to burst my bubble. I loved it because it questioned everything and it perfectly matched my skepticism towards creative writing courses. Regardless of my amazing experience within the creative writing masters, nobody can teach you how to write, but somebody can definitely teach you how to rewrite and how to read. In a world where everybody urges you to be original, creative, Goldsmith states that you can totally be creative with somebody else’s work with a little help from the Internet: word processing, databasing, recycling, sampling, appropriation, coding (‘Pure Poems’ written by Shigeru Matsui in alphanumeric binaries), plundering, programming, and even plagiarizing. Yes, plagiarizing. The most eloquent example (I love it) is this essay entitled ‘The Ecstasy of Influence: A plagiarism’. Jonathan Lethem brilliantly shows us that nothing is original in literature – all ideas has been shared, recycled, stolen, quoted, translated, re-translated, imitated, pirated, patch written, re-written and so on. The essay is the perfect example for this – not a single word or idea belongs Jonathan Lethem. Everything is borrowed from others’ books, ideas, writings. Goldsmith even taught the ‘Uncreative Writing’ course at the University of Pennsylvania where students were not allowed to bring to the class any trace of originality and creativity.

El poder del compromiso total: administrar la energía, no el tiempo, es la clave para el alto rendimiento y la renovación personal

El poder del compromiso total: administrar la energía, no el tiempo, es la clave para el alto rendimiento y la renovación personal

The Power of Full Engagement fue uno de los primeros libros que me ayudó a comenzar a comprenderme a mí mismo y a trabajar para aceptar cómo me siento y ser intuitivo. El concepto clave en el libro es que debes estar completamente comprometido con una tarea o completamente desvinculado y encontrando renovación. Por ejemplo, encontrar las inmersiones naturales dentro de su día y pensar en los rituales y cambios que podría hacer. Tal vez vayas a dar un paseo de 20 minutos a las 3:00 p. m. cuando, naturalmente, te sientas menos productivo.

Administrar para aprender: usar el proceso de gestión A3 para resolver problemas, obtener acuerdos, ser mentor y líder

Administrar para aprender: usar el proceso de gestión A3 para resolver problemas, obtener acuerdos, ser mentor y líder

One of the books, Managing to Learn: Using the A3 Management Process to Solve Problems, Gain Agreement and Lead, contained a story of a Japanese supervisor / mentor and how he was guiding his junior colleague in his thought process to solve a complex problem without ever dictating his actions. The story was told from the student and the mentor’s perspective simultaneously - so you could perceive the story from both angles. During that period, I learned a lot about the importance of determining a root cause to a problem before jumping to a conclusion.

Pensando, Rápido y Lento

Pensando, Rápido y Lento

Este libro es increíble, no me hizo cambiar de opinión, sino que cambió mi forma de pensar. Ayuda a comprender la diferencia entre la forma en que toma decisiones rápidas y las decisiones consideradas: se necesitan diferentes mecanismos en el cerebro. Comprender lo que está haciendo en un momento dado puede tener un profundo impacto en lo que finalmente decida.
