Best Books for Leaders - 2022

Every few years, I update my “best” leadership books.

Like any list or ranking, it’s largely a personal choice. I have a loose definition for them: they’re books that ‘spoke’ to me in one way or another.

Or they took me out of my normal thinking pattern. And all espouse a concept which I try to practice every day.

And yes, yes I shamelessly included one of my books on the list. (You’d do it too!)

7 Reasons Returning to the Office is a Good Idea

It’s not for everyone, or every position, but I can make a case why most “office” jobs should be at least hybrid. (Full-time office work is as dead as the dodo.)

   Culture building.


   Reduced tech fatigue.

   Career opportunities.

Hard to argue with those.

Most unemployed men in their 30s have been arrested

This is a rather jarring statement, based on a recent RAND study.

After the initial jolt, however, this statistic plays into a concept I’ve been discussing in recent speeches and presentations:

In this era of severe workforce shortages, we have to re-think everything about hiring.

Including people with previous arrests.

It’s why many states are starting to prohibit asking job candidates about their arrest history.
