Leadership has been crucially important in my biz ever since COVID hit us, so I'm curious what your favorite leadership books are! I'd love to hear a few recommendations and hopefully find a book I haven't read on this topic yet.

Simon Sinek - Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action : In my opinion purpose is one of the most important aspects of a powerful, motivating, driven, and successful individual / business which spreads through those they lead. His book facilitates around being purpose centered & initiating ACTION in others .

BOOK REVIEW: Start With Why by Simon Sinek - Roseanna Sunley Business Book  Reviews


His Ted talk is worthy of your attention & covers most of the points in the book

-Winning- Jack Welch
-Some of the Simon Sinek stuff works pretty well here too: Leaders Eat Last, Start With Why, The Infinite Game. Look past the SJW crap.
-Extreme Ownership- Jocko
-How to win friends and influence people. Carnige.
-John C Maxwell built an entire career on pretty high quality leadership media
-Influence from Caldini

Beyond that, I think a lot of the biographical stories of the greats are even more fun.

I can tell you what I was told many years ago.

Daily Telegraph, The Economist, Private Eye (That covers current world events)

Mayfair as you would not be getting your hands on a woman for 6 weeks.

Shogun by James Clavell

General Lord Slim - Defeat into Victory (get the version with maps)

How did you miss this one @Kak?
More of a Austrian theory book than a leadership one IMO

Fantastic book nonetheless.

As long as we are on Charles Koch... Science of Success is good too.

I haven’t read a business book in a while but I do like:

1. Hot to get rich by Felix Dennis
2. Principles by ray dalio
3. The 7 habits of highly effective people

But these days I’m just reading stuff on contemporary philosophy in art, film and logic.

But speaking of books. It’s also a good idea to maybe subscribe to a journal of your interest. I see big opportunities in these spaces. Subscription model of quality, valuable, insightful and unbiased information in a specialized area. Hard to come by these days in most mainstream media and book publishers. These days the shit you find is biased and brainwashed or just dumb.
