5 Leadership Books To Read In June 2024

Books are a great resource for learning and developing leadership skills. That’s one reason I create recommended leadership book lists. 

These lists are here to introduce you to new ideas, authors, and books to help you become a better leader.

It’s hard to argue that a good book can be as helpful as attending a seminar, chatting with another leader, or listening to audio content. The books on this month’s list will be an encouragement to you and help you grow professionally and personally.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.

Mary Ann Shaffer said:

That’s what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It’s geometrically progressive–all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.

Both of these people have one thing in common: They know the power a book has to change your life. 

Every book you pick up will open a door into the world of someone who has been there and done that. Their experiences are there for you to learn and grow from. So, what’s stopping you from picking up a great book?

One of the ways I consume books is through audiobooks. I toss on a pair of Shokz headphones, lace up my shoes, and I’m out the door with Lok. I’m also out the door with a lot of inspiring, growth material.

A great leader never stops learning. There’s multiple ways you can do this. Whether it’s additional college courses, online courses, attending seminars, Google-Fu, or some other way, the easiest way to continue to grow is by reading.

Reading can happen by cracking open a physical book (my wife loves the smell of a good book), downloading it on your eBook reader, or an audiobook. Regardless of which method you choose, reading opens you up to the insights of others. You can dive into what they’ve experienced and apply it to your organization.

This month, we’re bringing you 5 great leadership books to read.
