Leaders that read improve intelligence and lead with innovation and insight.

Some studies have shown, for example, that reading makes you smarter through “a larger vocabulary and more world knowledge in addition to the abstract reasoning skills.” Reading — whether Wikipedia, Michael Lewis, or Aristotle — is one of the quickest ways to acquire and assimilate new information. Many business people claim that reading across fields is good for creativity. And leaders who can sample insights in other fields, such as sociology, the physical sciences, economics, or psychology, and apply them to their organizations are more likely to innovate and prosper. We are leaders that read. Here you can find current, past, and future books on our reading list.

What an amazing book! With chapter after chapter of unique methods to devise winning titles or product names, Sam Horn kept me on my toes. Her examples were mind-blowing with such clever concepts like the “poop tent” for an outdoor place for dogs to do their business. Anyone needing a unique name, whether for a book, a product, an article, or a business will find countless clever concepts in POP!. I’m still working on my book title, and hope that when I find it and I launch my book, it will POP!

This book is a jewel of clarity, insight and a step-by-step transformational process. I’m using it, not only in my own organization but with clients in senior roles in their organizations. The steps lead to profound changes in perception and motivation – and that leads to behaviour change. I’ve experienced it and witnessed. Thanks to Kegan and Lahey for building on their “Immunity to Change” process with this very specific and practical application.

I have bought and given out so many of these books….they are wonderful for young and old people alike, who are trying to realign themselves and see their own worth, and strike out on another path. Knowing what you are good at, and what makes you a unique person is integral to Terri Cole’s teaching, and she does a cheerleader good job of making you see your own worth, while weaving in stories of her own. I recognize that she began as christian, and shares many of those values…I am not, but I aligned with everything she said.
