15 Leadership Books You Should Read

In these tempestuous times, when the very foundations we learnt to count on are gone, leadership has become more than a trendy fad or simplistic solutions.  It has become a really strength and a way to build companies, businesses and ideas that last.  The study of leadership is a study of the human experience.

As we move into summer, our team decided to pick the topic of Leadership for our booklist.  Our Executive Coach Marie recommends these books to her clients and uses them in her work.  We are so grateful she picked 15 we are sure will get you thinking about leadership in a different light.
