It’s not on the list because it’s a few years old (and perhaps not technically a leadership book?) but Marshall Goldsmith’s ‘What Got You Here Won’t Get You There’ is very good. Aimed at achievers who have ‘made it’ – and who are therefore self-certified that their approaches don’t require upgrading – Goldsmith does an inspiring job addressing the needs and approaches for doing just that. A few simple tips from the book made me a better listener and more articulate coach. Like lots of these books – although the backdrop is largely business, the lessons can be applied almost anywhere.
