7 Leadership Books Every Modern Leader Needs to Read | Avery Eisenreich

  1. 1. 7 Leadership Books Every Modern Leader Needs to Read © Avery Eisenreich Below are seven leadership books every modern leader could add to his or her library.
  2. 2. 1. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People © Avery Eisenreich The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a must-read business and self-help book. In it, Stephen Covey presents an approach to effectively attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles of a character ethic. The 'Seven Habits' are a remarkable set of inspirational standards for leaders who seek to live a full, purposeful and good life, and are applicable today more than ever. Stephen R. Covey
  3. 3. 2. Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... And Other’s Don’t © Avery Eisenreich What does it take to make a great company, and what traits will young leaders need to drive them? In this book, Jim Collins establishes new rigidity to the evaluation of business leadership with a research team reviewing “6,000 articles and generating 2,000 pages of interview transcripts.” The result is a systematic treatise on making a company great, with particularly interesting findings around what Collins calls “Level 5 Leadership”. Jim Collins
  4. 4. 3. Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader © Avery Eisenreich In the book Herminia Ibarra argues that today's rapid pace of change has a vast impact on leaders and, as a result, on the business they run. All too often, she also argues that leaders get stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even after their employees have suggested the need for change. To her, leaders need to learn to pivot even when there are no obvious signals guiding their way. She includes great advice about networking, authenticity and storytelling, areas that in other hands can seem like hopeless fads. Herminia Ibarra
  5. 5. 4. The Leader Who Had No Title © Avery Eisenreich The reason why this book is so powerful is because it gets down to the nitty gritty by exploring the easily overlooked qualities of leaders: modesty, consideration and empathy. Sharma argues that when you start to live out your values and get employees to follow and believe in the work you do, you become a leader without a title. Actions speak louder than words! Robin Sharma
  6. 6. 5. Drive © Avery Eisenreich In his book, Daniel H. Pink emphasizes the importance of motivation in good leadership. He argues that the use of rewards and punishments to control our employees’ work habits is becoming obsolete. To maximize employees’ enjoyment and productivity for the work they do, he argues that leaders need to upgrade their thinking to include autonomy, mastery and purpose. Drive is a worthwhile read that will get you to think and inspire you to act. Daniel Pink
  7. 7. 6. Daring Greatly © Avery Eisenreich Daring Greatly is an excellent book for young readers to read. It explores and advises against the danger of pursuing certainty and control above all. Instead, Brown offers all of us a priceless guide to the real reward of vulnerability: courage. Brené Brown
  8. 8. 7. Tribes: We Need You to lead Us © Avery Eisenreich Best Selling Author & Motivational Speaker Seth Godin argues that lasting and substantive change can be made possible with the creation of tribes: a group of people connected to each other, to a leader and to an idea. All one has to do is find or assemble a movement of similarly minded individuals and get them excited by the idea. If you are seeking innovative ways to inspire others to follow, help get noticed and leave a legacy, this is the book for you. Seth Godin
