5 Books Leaders Should Read In August 2021


We all know how important reading is. It helps us take in the wisdom of those who have gone before us. It is a great way to learn quickly.

That’s why every month I share with you 5 books that will help you become a better leader.

This month is no different. I’m offering you up a smorgasbord of great leadership books.

5 Books Leaders Should Read In August 2021

1. The Soul Of A Team by Tony Dungy:

The Soul Of A Team is a fable by Tony Dungy. In this great book, Dungy helps the reader realize that not all teams are created equal. And that’s okay.

You can work on the team. You can help them become better. That’s what this book will help you uncover.

2. Lead Like It Matters To God by Richard Stearns:

The leadership principles Stearns shares in Lead Like It Matters To God will help every leader rethink the way they lead. While what we do as leaders is important to the organization and team members we lead, leading well is also important to God.

Stearns helps us understand that the values we live out in the workplace are more important than the results we achieve.

3. Running with Joy by Robb Hiller:

Dogs have a way of teaching us what is truly important. Rob Hiller, in Running With Joy, shares the insights he’s learned from running with his dog, Bentley.

I can relate to his stories. I’ve learned so much from running with Lok, that it is hard to understand the connections that have been made.

If you have a soft spot in your heart for dogs, read this book. It will connect your love of your dog to your love of leadership.

4. H3 Leadership by Brad Lomenick:

Brad Lomenick is the former president of the Catalyst Leadership Conference. In H3 Leadership, Brad identifies 20 leadership characteristics that will help every leader succeed in the right way.

H3 is an easy read. It’s also one you won’t forget.

5. Listen Well, Lead Better by Steve Harling:

There’s not a leader out there that won’t say he doesn’t want to lead better. Yet, we constantly fail to do so.

Steve Harling, in Listen Well, Lead Better, helps us understand why. Most of us aren’t listening enough. Or well enough.

Let Harling help you understand the principles behind listening and how it leads to being a better leader.
