Crowdsourced Reading List on Leadership

stack-of-booksRecently I started a discussion in the AICD Group on LinkedIn about which books provided members with the greatest inspiration and guidance and I was very surprised by the enthusiasm with which people wanted to call out the books that had helped them with guidance on how to navigate the challenges of management and leadership.  Perhaps books are indeed your friends!

Happy reading!
