Leaders are readers. Reading helps you discover ideas to try and expand your mental models. In this post I point you to reviews of recent business books. You’ll find pointers to reviews of Leading at a Distance: Practical Lessons for Virtual Success, Effortless: Make It Easier to Do What Matters Most, Not Done Yet: How Women over 50 Regain Their Confidence and Claim Workplace Power, The Edge: How 10 CEOs Learned to Lead—and the Lessons for Us All, and Impact Players: How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger, and Multiply Your Impact. There’s also a preview of business books scheduled for release in November 2021 by Michael McKinney.
