Do You Really Need To Read Leadership Books?

In Company Culture, General Leadership Skills, Leadership, Leadership Books, Leading By Example, Management on August 11, 2010 at 7:39 pm

The answer is yes. 

And, fortunately, there are lots out there to select from.  However, if you don’t have time to read books about how to be an effective and good leader, you can select a few words from the list below and then practice what those words mean, as you lead your team every day.

Leaders on the LinkedIn Executive Suite group came up with these nearly 50 words in answer to a discussion topic I posted in the group forum:  “A Good Leader Is [insert one word].”  A big thank you to that group for this valuable list.
