Have You Heard Any Good Management Books Lately?

8 Aug, 2012 By: Robert Green

CAD Manager's Toolbox: You know that your reading list can affect your job performance — but how can you find the time to keep up with it?

I know you’re a busy CAD manager, with an equally busy life outside of work, and you don’t have a moment to spare — I have the same problem. But if you don’t have any free time, when will you read the management books that will expand your horizons and help you become better at your job?

My answer to this dilemma is simple. Don’t read those books — listen to them!

You can download audiobook versions of most bestsellers from online vendors such as Amazon, and listen to them in the car, on the plane, on the treadmill, while jogging, etc. Since audiobooks are typically encoded as MP3 files, you can listen using your smartphone, iPad, or the most compact MP3 players.

So don’t let being busy keep you from absorbing great management guidance. You can multitask and use your ears to take in valuable information that will enhance your career.
