WashingtonExec Summer Reading List Series:
It might not yet “officially” be summer, but with rising temperatures beckoning the start of patio cookout season, WashingtonExec asked area executives which books they planned to peruse this summer.
Sid Fuchs, the CEO and president at MacAulay-Brown, Inc. and author of Get Off the Bench: Unleashing The Power of Strategic Networking Through Relationships, told WashingtonExec he has three books on his summer reading list. The first, The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Sean Covey is targeted at leaders and deals with implementing a simple formula to execute strategic priorities “in the midst of a whirlwind.”
Second on Fuchs’ list was Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s Killing Jesus: A History. The September 2013 published book details the events leading up to Jesus’s death in attempts to challenge the way we read history.
Lastly, Fuchs said he intends to read Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War by former secretary of defense Robert M. Gates.
In April, Fuchs provided the keynote address to the Dayton Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) Leadership Summit. Read about the event here.
