Book recommendations for business leaders: 12/13/16

  |   Reading Lists Print Friendly and PDF

Stephen King says that if you want to be a writer, there are two things you must do: read a lot and write a lot. This is about the “read a lot” part. I include reading lists and book reviews that will help you do business more effectively and write better for business.

In this post, I point you to reviews of Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life, The Myth of the Strong Leader, and The New Alpha: Join the Rising Movement of Influencers and Changemakers Who Are Redefining Leadership.

From Theodore Kinni: How to Get Off the Hook

“A Harvard Medical School psychologist explains how to manage your emotions and achieve your goals.”

From Bill Gates: What Makes a Great Leader?

“Most casual observers of history probably don’t have a great deal of familiarity with the story of Adolfo Suárez. But to read Archie Brown’s fascinating book, The Myth of the Strong Leader, is to see an illustration that leaders like Suárez, who served as prime minister of Spain from 1976 to 1981, possess leadership styles and capacities that are incredibly effective, and depressingly rare.”

From Skip Prichard: Define Your Personal Leadership Identity

“And that’s why Danielle Harlan’s book, The New Alpha: Join the Rising Movement of Influencers and Changemakers Who Are Redefining Leadership, appealed to me. She packed this book with advice on how to become the best version of yourself and to use your influence for good.”
