Reading List (Updated)

Reading List of Classic Books to Help Leaders

On September 3, 2013, I started my Leadership Blog with the idea that I had something worthy to tell the world about leadership.  I was wide-eyed but also humbled by the many men and women who helped me find my leadership potential.

I’ve changed up the way I will present books on leadership.  Over the next few days, you will see a few formatting changes.  What this page is about, is a list of those books that had the MOST influence on me.

The following link is to a PDF file and is my previous Reading List of over 100 great books on leadership: MASTER Reading List of Leadership Books
