5 Books Leaders Should Read In April 2022

1. Reach by Becky Robinson:

I’ve known Becky for a long time now. She runs a great business called Weaving Influence. There, she helps authors promote their books.

I was beyond the moon when I saw that she was writing her own book. I was honored to receive a pre-release copy of the book.

To say that the book is an excellent resource for those looking to grow their reach is an understatement. Much like Michael Hyatt’s Platform was a gamechanger, Reach is the 2022 version of the book.

2. The Lean Startup by Eric Ries:

Eric has a heart to help startups succeed and succeed quickly. Startups need more than capital to grow. They also need human creativity.

In The Lean Startup, Eric shows readers how both are needed and how both will help accelerate growth. Discover how to test your vision continuously and adapt and adjust before it’s too late.

Lean thinking defines value as providing benefit to the customer; anything else is waste.

This book is perfect for the entrepreneurial leader or the leader who’s looking to change directions in their business.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bob at a Young Life benefit dinner a few years ago. Bob’s personality is infectious. You won’t walk away the same from Bob.

The same goes for his books. When you pick up a Bob Goff book, your life is going to change.

In Dream Big, Bob wants to help you to discover how to dream big. Dreaming big means defining your dreams clearly, identifying the obstacles, and developing a specific plan for reaching those goals.
