These books might be written for all kinds of leaders, but we have a lot to learn from them.  All of them are worth your time, I promise.  In fact, much of my writing and training is inspired directly from these books!

Self Reflection / Improvement Books

In order to manage others, we must manage ourself first.  Our time.  Our attitude.  Our reactions.  Our focus.  These books have helped me do that for many years.

Selling & Negotiating Books

If you don't think Selling and Negotiating are part of your job, think again. You have to sell your boss on ideas, sell clients on technical directions, and sell you team on following you every day. Reading these books BEFORE you need them will save you a mountain of heart ache, I promise.
