The Opposable Mind
Author: Roger L. Martin
Want to understand what your CEO is thinking? The best book how successful CEOs think is Martin's The Opposable Mind: Winning Through Integrative Thinking. Not only is it considered a classic leadership book, it also has a simple but important premise: Don't watch what great leaders do, learn how they think. Your situation is different from theirs, so copying their actions makes no sense. Learning to think better does. Of course, this is how good CEOs think. If you don't have a good CEO, I don't know which book tells you how bad CEOs think.
