Have a book on us!

Well, here it is… our list of books we will sponsor to anyone who asks.  That’s right. If the cost of a book stands between you and becoming a better leader, let us know what book that might be and if we agree it’s a good leadership book, we’ll get you a copy. The only catch is that you come back here, or go someplace public, and share your thoughts on the book once you’ve finished it.

You can even add books to this list if 1) you’d like that book, or 2) you’re willing to sponsor that book.  If you simply have an opinion about a book, please share that in the comments.  Feel free to vote on your favorites too.  More info on this whole idea is available on the page Free Books.

    Great book on the necessary qualities of a true leader. Leadership is about having a calm and confident demeanor associated with a strong internal compass. This book lends itself to focusing on those parts of leadership that start from within the person. Only by building a strong personal foundation can one be a true leader.
