Read Alicia McKay's popular books on strategy and leadership
Most business books are boring. They're a bunch of self-important, middle-aged, middle-class white dudes telling you about their morning routine and how they excel at the office (while their wife takes care of the rest.)
Worse, they're not useful. Those books are packed with American corporate theory that sounds good on the page, until you think about the complicated mess that is your life and work, and it all falls over.
Read these books instead. Practical, actionable advice grounded in best-practice research and written in Alicia's trademark style.
