Leaders are readers. Reading helps you discover ideas to try and expand your mental models. In this post, I point you to several lists of books. Check them out. You may discover your next read or even a book that will change your life.
“SUMMER is over. It’s time to take stock of where you are and prepare now to improve your leadership.”
“As with all my lists, they are not meant to be exhaustive or definitive. But they should give you a good starting point for the long and growing literature about these topics. I’ve kept to one book per author; in some cases it is their most recent book, but I’m not aiming at a survey of new works on these topics.”
“Why put together a reading list of the best books on motivation? Well, motivation is the driving force behind all human action. It’s what propels us to do things, both big and small. Whether it’s getting out of bed in the morning or meeting a deadline at work, motivation is what allows us to turn our dreams into reality. But what exactly is motivation? Put simply, motivation is the desire to achieve a goal.”
“Looking for good self-help books? This is my list of the best self-help books of all-time. If you only have time to read one or two books, I recommend looking at the Top Self-Help Books section below.”
“Want to be a great leader? Hear from top business leaders like Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Nike founder Phil Knight and venture capitalist John Doerr. Take lessons from the biographies of tech founders, a Navy SEAL and US Presidents. This selection of top books about leadership was carefully chosen from bestseller lists, Forbes, and even from the recommendations of Bill Gates and Barack Obama.”
“Looking to fill up your ‘to read’ list? The ‘Financial Times’ has just announced the shortlist for its annual Business Book of the Year award”
