Really enjoyable read which discusses how great cultures are enabled by deciding what is important to members of the group (includes values, behaviors, priorities etc), clear communication / training to members of the group to instill this culture and what communication within groups with great culture looks like. (Clue - it's awesome!) The resulting benefits are illustrated with some remarkable examples from organizations which have built exceptional cultures. Enjoy!
A refreshing approach to discussions and problem solving. This book teaches techniques for using questions as a communication tool for discussions, problem solving and sparking creativity.
It rings true that you need to ask the right question before getting an answer which is useful, they have lots of useful suggestions for how to ensure you are asking the right questions. The book helped me personally reduce the number of statements I make (which tend to alienate people and spark conflict) and to explore finding the right question which helps trigger really useful and enjoyable discussions.

When discussing strategy, tactics, goals, hiring, in fact any company initiative, WHY the company is doing what it does can act as both a north star and guard rails. We need something which makes sure we are aiming in the right direction (what) and doing the right activities to get there (how). We also need something which helps us with scale (are we aiming to do things which will make a meaningful impact on achieving our mission) and prevents us from doing things which run counter to Why we are doing things in the first place. Simon Sinek is an amazing evangelist for making sure your organization has a clearly articulated Why which is effectively communicated. Everyone in the organization should be able to say what a company's Mission is and be excited by it! I have found that a clearly articulated Why ensures that we focus on the right things, aim big enough and can motivate everyone around us to the company's mission. Thanks Simon! (I recommend everyone read his book Start With Why https://www.amazon.com/Start-Why-Leaders-Inspire-Everyone/dp/1591846447)
