1. Good to Great by Jim Collins

“Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.”

Good to great, Jim Collins

What makes companies like Nike, Mcdonalds, and Coca Cola different from other companies? 

Over the past 15 years, Collins has investigated the performance of the great companies to arrive at his conclusion of why these type of companies succeed and others don’t.

You’ll find that “great” companies don’t only outperform “good” companies monetarily, but they outperform with hiring the right people, a better vision, and a meaningful purpose.
