Our top 10 picks for inspiration and practical leadership skills
Leading Through Uncertainty: Emotional resilience and human connection in a performance-driven world
Jude Jennison£17.98 £16.72
Drawn from her experience working with a herd of horses, this is an extraordinary call to intuitive, authentic leadership.
L. David Marquet£14.99 £13.94
A remarkable analysis of how what we say (and what we don't) as leaders shapes the behaviour and attitudes of those we lead. Sobering and challenging.
Chris Lewis and Dr Pippa Malmgren£14.99 £13.94
Another leadership classic from Malmgren and Lewis - this is the handbook for leaders who aspire to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.
Brene Brown£12.99 £12.08
Pretty much all Brown's titles are valuable for leaders but if you're going to read one, this is it: authentic, human, gritty leadership for our times.
The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth
Amy C. Edmondson£22.99 £21.38
So much modern leadership literature is based on Edmondson's groundbreaking research - you need to read this to understand why.
Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras£18.98 £17.65
Enough said. Jim Collins remains an essential part of any leader's to-read list, and this, along with Good to Great, is a classic.
Emmie Bidston and Katy Granville-Chapman£18.98 £17.65
An oddly moving book, that dares to name the love that underpins the most transformative, effective leadership. Impossible not to feel inspired by their passion for the mission of leadership.
Daniel Coyle£9.99 £9.29
Forget tactics, you build the character of your organization - which determines its performance - through the almost unconscious rituals and stories you create as a leader. Coyle reveals how culture works, and how to shape it.
Patrick M. Lencioni£18.98 £17.65
Another classic - a narrative approach that communicates key leadership principles more effectively and engagingly than any instructional manual.
Clayton M. Christensen£23.00 £21.39
It's a classic for a reason. Again, this one is so foundational to modern leadership literature that it's easy to think you must have already read it, but if you haven't, make the time. It's well worth it.
