Hey Everyone,

Hope you're having a great week. Here are a few things I've been reading, writing and pondering lately. Enjoy!

1. The WeWork Meltdown


I can’t get enough. This story is just so bizarre. Here are a few great reads on it:

2. What Do Executives Do, Anyway?


S/o to my coworker Haley Bryant for sharing this.

...The job of an executive is: to define and enforce culture and values for their whole organization, and to ratify good decisions.
That's all.
Not to decide. Not to break ties. Not to set strategy. Not to be the expert on every, or any topic. Just to sit in the room while the right people make good decisions in alignment with their values. And if they do, to endorse it. And if they don't, to send them back to try again.


3. The Wisdom of Peter Drucker from A to Z


There’s a bunch of good stuff in here. I’m reading my first Drucker book now (The Effective Executive) and will report back when I’m finished.

Encountering Drucker for the first time, readers may dismiss as obvious his observations on subjects like motivating workers and encouraging innovation. But such observations were far from obvious when Drucker first made them; and if they seem so now it is because his wisdom and clarity compelled so many companies to act as he advised.
