Good to Great Summary

Updated: Jul 12, 2020

It's impossible to have a great life unless it's a meaningful life and it's impossible to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. ⠀

So guys you can't just avoid reading this if you are in business or wanted to start one. Business is all about understanding and one of my favorite topics so here is a short summary from my all-time favorite book.⠀

1)Leave 5 leadership ⠀

To start a business leadership is a must-learn a skill without it you can't succeed. But here the author has given different types of leadership skills i.e. level 1,2,3,4 and 5. One to four types are the one who has the brain but not the heart and vice versa. So it is only level 5 which will give you greatness and here what it is ⠀

An individual who blends extreme personal humility with an intense professional will. Their ambition is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves. ⠀



Remove the wrong people from the bus. Great vision without great people is irrelevant. If you want to achieve greatness remove all mediocre type people from your life ⠀

3) The real question in business is not, “How do we motivate our people?” If you have the right people, they will be self-motivated. The key is to not de-motivate them. One of the primary ways to de-motivate people is to ignore the brutal facts of reality. Lack of appreciation and empathy etc⠀

4) Hedgehog Concept(very important) is a simple, crystalline concept that flows from deep understanding about the intersection of the following three circles: What you can be the best in the world at (and, equally important, what drives your economic engine, What you are deeply passionate about. Without finding an answer to the above question you can never achieve greatness⠀

Many people get stuck in business because they don't have any strategy to take that to the next level. So this book will teach how to do it and create an enduring business that will not only create a profile but also satisfaction.
