To help you find your next book, we’ve asked our recent podcast guests, “What 1-2 books would you recommend every leader have in their leadership library?” Barbara Cave Henricks, Rusty Shelton, Scott Mautz, and Glenn Hartman share their favorites.
#1601 – For the past eight months, I’ve been asking a single question of our guests: “What 1-2 books would you recommend every leader have in their leadership library?” Recommendations from Pepper de Callier, Founder and Executive Director of the Prague Leadership Institute; Bill Carmody, author, speaker, and CEO of Trepoint; Bill Humphries, President and CEO of Merz North America; and Kevin Cashman, bestselling author and Senior Partner for CEO and Executive Development at Korn Ferry.
Reading may be one of the most under appreciated tools for continuing your leadership development. It is one of the quickest ways to acquire and assimilate information. It is a mode of development that is available 24 hours a day. You can do it virtually anywhere. It can be done in small increments or for large blocks of time. It is scalable, flexible, and on-demand. That’s why virtually all of the development plans I create for my clients include some form of reading, and why one of the most frequent pieces of advice I give to leaders—especially to those just starting out—is to build your leadership library.
