This selection of three books invites you to identify leadership behaviours in all of life. I encourage this because I don’t read many management or leadership self-help guides, or what are often war stories from business. Or if I do start to read one, I seldom get very far. Why don’t I read on? Too many clichés. Not enough original content. And way too long.
And in any case, I feel my world of heritage only reads such titles to allow it to steal the lexicon of business to give it solidarity in a world where it often finds itself betwixt commerce and social purpose.
The big lesson I have forced upon myself is not to believe that being a leader means being a hero. Remember that adage, None Of Us Is As Smart As All Of Us.
