Last week I finished The Art of Leadership: Small Things, Done Well by Michael Lopp. I read his Managing Humans recently and joined his leadership channel in slack that has more than 15 thousand members. In 30 articles borrowed from his long running blog Rands in Response and divided equality for line managers, directors and executives in topics, he tells us that Leadership practices are small things done repetitively over time. He touches on several ideas – reading the room, using spidey-sense to render decisions, delegating until it hurts, getting feedback, giving compliments, understanding the culture, being kind. I liked this book as well although I would rank his other book Managing Humans a bit higher.
