It’s the end-of-year list time! We’re going to see lists on any subject you want for the worst and best of 2012. There’s a great one on leadership books just out by Tim Fox, the “Federal Coach”, who blogs for the Washington Post.
If you’re going to be a great Leader-Manager you need to keep up on the best in Leadership thought and example. Leaders need to read! You should always have a good book going on your job as a leader. Fox’s list is short and sweet. His recommendations span history, biography, and practical application. To be great you need to follow the greats. Fox has a great list to up your Leadership game.
I also have my own list of favorites – those books and articles that have been helpful to me and those I teach on our journey to becoming better leaders.
But Reading Isn’t Leading!
Along with my reading list I provide my Know How Notes. Know How Notes are ideas about how you can apply what you are reading to your practice of Leadership.
