Why Five Books?
I love learning about new ideas that help me develop into a more effective leader. A big part of why this is an enjoyable experience is it allows me the opportunity to share information and help others develop.
I’m often asked, “What is a book about leadership I should read?” This is such a tough question to answer because my recommendation is different depending on who is asking and what their strengths are. My response has always been, “What are you wanting to learn about?” Or, “What area of leadership are you hoping to improve?”
I’ve never taken a one-size-fits-all approach to development.
With that being said, this recurring question motivated me to locate the skill gaps most common with leaders and resources that help address them.
The ideas in each book will be most effective when a leader understands them well enough to teach their team how to execute them.
If you find value in this book, share it with a friend. I made it extremely condensed with the hopes it is able to be consumed by even the person with the busiest schedule.
Leadership is a mentality, not a position. You can have a positive impact and influence on the people around you if you choose to.
So what are the five books? Listed in suggested reading order:
– Growth Mindset by Carol Dweck
– Radical Candor by Kim Scott
– The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni
– Start With Why by Simon Sinek
– Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
This book will provide you a few impactful quotes from each book, a description of why the book will help you, and actionable items to take away.
I hope this tool will help leaders understand a few necessary principles for developing a successful team and encourage a desire for additional development opportunities.
