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 Notes on Complexity: A Scientific Theory of Connection, Consciousness, and Being, The Well-Lived Life: A 102-Year-Old Doctor’s Six Secrets to Health and Happiness at Every Age, How Big Things Get Done: The Surprising Factors That Determine the Fate of Every Project, from Home Renovations to Space Exploration and Everything In Between, Rising Together: How We Can Bridge Divides and Create a More Inclusive Workplace, and Good Power: Leading Positive Change in Our Lives, Work, and World. I also point you to Michael McKinney’s list of the top leadership books scheduled for release in June 2023.

“Over time, Gladys McGarey identified six articles of faith that enabled her to achieve and sustain her own health and happiness. They serve as the focal points in her remarkable memoir, shared with a fervent hope that her insights help others to achieve a well-lived life.”
“Bent Flyvbjerg has a sobering statistic to share: 99.5% of major projects fail to deliver their targeted results on time and on budget. His new book How Big Things Get Done, coauthored with Dan Gardner, explores this phenomenon—from infrastructure projects to major sporting events to corporate transformations.”
“In her new book, Sally Helgesen looks at the triggers that leave us divided and defeated, and the practices that can help colleagues, teams, and organizations rise together.”
“THE TIME TO THINK about power is before you get it. Power is part of leadership, and it can be used in the service of others or for personal gain.”
