Book recommendations for business leaders: 4/14/16

Apr 14, 2016 | Reading Lists

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 reading lists compiled by Josh Linkner and Sarah Green Carmichael.

From Josh Linkner: Two must-read books for growth leaders, entrepreneurs

“There are times in life when you come across a certain book that makes you rethink the world. Those rare finds that push you as both a person and a leader. I’m talking about the ones that hit you in the head, heart and gut all at the same time. Coincidentally, two such books were released just last week. I was so moved by both, I feel compelled to share them, as I know they will help you enjoy meaningful growth, change and progress:”

From Michael Bungay Stanier: Sarah Green Carmichael’s Five Essential Books for Managing Conflict

“Sarah Green Carmichael is a Senior Editor at Harvard Business Review, where she has spent the better part of a decade thinking about how to improve the practice of management. Sarah is also the host of the immensely enjoyable The HBR IdeaCast, a weekly podcast featuring new management thinking and practical advice. If you’re too busy to read — or you have a long commute to enliven — you should really check it out.”
