During SXSWi I spent time with Todd Sattersten from 800-CEO-READ. We talked biz books, beer, and barbeque. We also discussed a writing project I’m working on and Todd helped me to better shape the idea.
In our discussions, Todd suggested I read NOTES ON DIRECTING (Frank Hauser & Russell Reich). It’s not a business book. Instead, it’s a book on how playhouse directors should go about doing their business. (Hmm, interesting.)
The approach of managing a stage production with actors, stagehands, and a script is not unlike managing a project with core team members, sub-team members, and a project plan. (Makes sense.)
You’ll have to connect some of the dots here, but I’m sure after reading these money quotes from NOTES ON DIRECTING, you’ll gain insights into being a better business manager.
