Apr 7, 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 In this post, I point you to recommendations Michael McKinney’s First Look at Leadership Books for April 2016, and reading lists from John Elkington, and Mark Horgan.

From Theodore Kinni: John Elkington’s Required Reading

“Tracing John Elkington’s career is akin to taking a journey through the evolution of corporate social and environmental responsibility over the past five decades. In 1978, he cofounded Environmental Data Services to provide companies with news and analysis of environmental law and policy. In 1987, he cofounded SustainAbility, a think tank and consultancy that promoted sustainable development at the corporate level. And in 2008, he cofounded Volans, a ‘change agency’ that is focused the challenge of creating a sustainable global economy.”
