Best Leadership Books 2021


In 2021 I read 50 Books. The first thing you might be wondering is "How does he read so many books?" I shared my technique in this article.


Many of the books I read in 2021 were on the topic of Leadership. I'm always trying to learn to become a better leader. Every year new books are released. Some good, some bad.


I've created a shortlist of the 10 best leadership books I read in 2021.


Highlights from these best leadership books include:


Conflict:

Relationship conflict is generally bad for performance, but some task conflict can be beneficial: it’s been linked to higher creativity and smarter choices.

Adam Grant - Think Again


Relationships:

Most relationships are not exceptional. It is exceptional relationships that enable people to succeed in life and work. The challenge - exceptional relationships are exceptionally hard to develop.

Carole Robin and David Bradford - Connect


Listening:

To really listen is to be moved physically, chemically, emotionally, and intellectually by another person’s narrative.

Kate Murphy - You're Not Listening


Wealth:

People who live far below their means enjoy a freedom that people busy upgrading their lifestyles can’t fathom.

The Almanack of Naval Ravikant by Eric Jorgeson


Product Teams:

Give teams problems to solve, rather than features to build. Empower them to solve those problems in the best way they see fit.

Marty Cagan - Empowered
