Beating the Odds

Must-Read Books for Leaders

A coach just asked for recommendations on a book to help him mold his philosophy.

What a great question! Here are three for sure:

Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell.
Talent Is Overrated, Geoff Colvin
The Talent Code, Daniel Coyle

All three discuss the subject of human potential, and how anyone can pursue excellence and success.

Another must read is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. A classic, this book explains exactly what the title suggests.

What books would you recommend a young coach — or boss — read?
