Leadership Books

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
John Maxwell
Simply the best introductory leadership book out there. 

Leading Change
John Kotter
By far the best book on this topic out there. If you don’t care for all the business talk, check out its non-business cousin, Our Iceberg is Melting.

Great By Choice
Jim Collins
In my opinion, his best book. It reveals how one company can flourish while another fails under the exact same circumstances.

 Making Vision Stick 
Andy Stanley 
A quick, fantastic read that covers the basics of solid vision casting to create passion in those you lead.

Death By Meeting
Patrick Lencioni
A recipe to change the worst problem in business today – bad meetings.

Developing the Leaders Around You
John Maxwell
A how-to book on the best way to multiply your leadership – equip and develop others.

Henry Cloud
A very chewy, deep dive into the finer points of leadership.

The Way of the Shepherd
Kevin Lehman & William Pentak
Simply the best book out there on leading and managing people. A very quick, but powerful read.

Axiom: Powerful Leadership Proverbs 
Bill Hybels
Bill gives dozens and dozens of 2-3 page pearls from his 30+ year experience leading in the toughest and highest stakes environment there is, the church.

The Servant
James Hunter
“A simple story about the true essence of leadership.” If lived out, a true game changer for you and those you lead.

How to Lead by the Book (Faith-based)
Dave Anderson
This unashamedly biblical leadership book contrasts our way versus how God wants us to lead, hire/fire and run an organization. A refreshing read.

How the Mighty Fall
Jim Collins
A revealing look at how companies go from being great to going out of business. 

The Speed of Trust 
Stephen M.R. Covey
An excellent book that reveals that trust is the center of leadership, and how to improve yours. An electronic quiz for your peers is included.

Switch: How to Change When Change is Hard
Chip & Dan Heath
A think-outside-the-box book on personal & societal change.


Leadership Conference

Willow Creek Leadership Summit 
A can’t miss 2 day leadership event for both business and church leaders held in hundreds of cities across the world in early August.
