All the books written below have been chosen to help your business grow by developing core behaviors and values.
For leaders, many of the books will suggest the same possibility. We have attempted to create categories for you to choose the books you want to start with, to grow as a human being, a leader, or as the principal in your business.
A suggestion for you when you read a book is to create value beyond just the learning. Look for one point and then “Create an Action Item” for each book that you read and set a goal for when it will be achieved. If you really want to challenge yourself, pick up to five BHAGS (explained in the book Good to Great) for each book and set a time frame for when they will happen.
