“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
-Harry S. Truman
I firmly believe in this quote by HST.
As a leader, ‘self-development’ is not intended for you. Self development is for the people who look to you for guidance. Those of whom you lead, deserve your absolute best in every capacity – morally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
This not only refines your ability to lead, but, most importantly, your ability to serve those whom you lead.
These 9 books, all released in 2016, will make you, not only a better leader, but a better person. Accompanying each recommendation is a video (a little ‘hack’ to save you the time) which highlights the main takeaway of each work.
Each work will challenge you. They will challenge your perspective. They will challenge your past.
They will force you to reflect. Reflect on your experiences. Your successes. Your failures. Your shortcomings. Your victories. These books will make your 2017 better than your 2016.
