Anyone have book/podcast recommendations on creative leadership? Or on leadership/managing in general?

I love listening to a podcast called “The A List” by the Adhouse Ad School. They are hour long interviews with the best CDs in the business. And although they are geared toward junior creatives, I find them inspiring and helpful. You get to see what makes these guys tick...how they got to be the best. It’s an easy listen, too. I stream it on SoundCloud while driving or working out. I assume it’s also on iTunes but not sure.

Glad you like it OP. Some other things worth mentioning: A few years ago, Gerry Graf wrote an article for Fast Company called “Master Class: How to make a great commercial.” It’s a one-off, but really touches on his personal management style and creative philosophy. Def worth reading. And speaking of Master Classes, think of subscribing to the new “Master Class” online video series. For $180 you can take all the classes. It’s not about advertising, but there is such a wealth of information dumbed down for Average Joes that it’s easy to see how these people became the best at what they do. Michelin Star Chefs like Thomas Keller and Ramsey...Directors like Ron Howard and Scorsese...film composers who discuss how to tell a story with music...authors like James Patterson (former ad guy) and David Mamet...photographers like Annie Leibovitz. Many of them offer words of wisdom which can serve you well in the creative fields. Money well spent. And lastly, scan LinkedIn for relevant ad-related posts by top CDs and managers. There’s usually an article or two that’s timely and topical. Hope this helps!

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
