5 Books Leaders Should Read In December 2020

Reading is a great way to discover new thoughts, challenge old thoughts, and become wiser. There’s no shortage of books out there and that’s a GOOD thing.

The knowledge of ages is stored within these tomes. They contain the blood, sweat, and tears of those who have led before us.

It’s the end of another month. This means it’s time for new book recommendations.

Before we begin, I wanted to clear something up. While leaders are readers, it doesn’t mean leaders are fast readers. A couple of questions have come through regarding whether or not you should be reading all 5 books a month. My answer is no, you don’t have to. These are just recommendations of great books to put on your reading list.
