On My List

Recently someone asked me on Twitter what’s on my reading list for this year,

so… I thought I would share with you what’s on my radar so far:

Good to Great and the Social Sectors by Jim Collins

The Leadership Pipeline by Charan, Drotter & Noel

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Tribal Leadership by Logan, King & Fischer-Wright

Paul, Women & Wives by Craig Keener

Sacred Rhythms by Ruth Haley Barton

Management of the Absurd by Richard Farson

Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis

Necessary Dreams by Anna Fels

The Leader’s Voice by Crossland & Clarke

Open by Andre Agassi

Those are the ones waiting in line on my shelves.  I’ll add more as the year goes.  I like to have a mix of new books and older books.  I also have rule that everything I read is based upon recommendation.

Currently I’m in the middle of:

  • Going Rogue by Sarah Palin
  • Put Your Dream to the Test by John C. Maxwell
  • My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Piccoult
  • True North by Bill George

And I recently finished this book:

I’ve just recently discovered Bill George and I’m really enjoying his books.  7 Lessons for Leading in Crisis is a great, practical resource especially if you find yourself facing an unexpected leadership crisis.

What is on your reading list this year?

    How do you like Going Rouge? I've been debating whether or not to read it. I love to read! I'm reading a biography on Benjamin Franklin right now. A recommendation from Jeff Henderson.
