Q. I’d like to improve my leadership skills and I’d appreciate you providing me with leads to resources you’d recommend for an up and coming leader?
A. Author John Maxwell has written a number of books on leadership and also has a complimentary eNewsletter - Leadership Wired – that you may enjoy. You can check out John’s web site for more information.
I’ve read two of John’s leadership books – The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and The 21 Most Powerful Minutes in a Leader’s Day – and they’re both pretty good reads.
If you’re looking for a sports specific leadership book, you may want to check out Sports Leaders & Success by Investor’s Business Daily.
Two other books I’ve enjoyed on the subject of leadership are: Leadership and Self-Deception by The Arbinger Institute and The Serving Leader by Jennings and Stahl-Wert.
