Book recommendations for business leaders: 5/4/17

May 4, 2017 | 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 business reading lists put together by Michael McKinney, Jen Louden, Catherine Rice, and Madeleine Homan Blanchard.

From Michael McKinney: First Look: Leadership Books for May 2017

“Here’s a look at some of the best leadership books to be released in May.”

From Michael Bungay Stanier: Jen Louden’s Five Essential Books for Writing

“Considering writing a book? It can be a long and difficult path. (I know. See why I almost gave up on writing The Coaching Habit.) However, my friend, Jen Louden, knows a thing or two about writing. Jen is the author of numerous books on well-being and whole living, including her most recent The Life Organizer. Jen has spoken around the world on self-care, written a national magazine column and even sat on Oprah’s couch, talking about the power of retreats. I’m thrilled that she is sharing her essential books for writing. Take it away, Jen.”

From Catherine Rice: 10 business and money books everyone is reading right now

“To help you keep up with the most successful Joneses, we scoured Amazon’s list of strategy-centric books everyone is reading right now.”

From Madeleine Homan Blanchard: 8 Top Leadership Books for Coaches

“My son was an intern at The Ken Blanchard Companies last summer when he asked me ‘What do you think is the best book on leadership?’ I was stumped, because there are so many wonderful books on leadership—by not only business leaders but also many other types of leaders, past and present.”
