Recommended Books and Films

Leaders don’t learn merely by reading, or viewing other media, good reading and fine films can enrich the learning experience.

Below are listed some of the books and films recommended to our clients. They represent a selection of excellent thought and insight on their subjects.

There are very few “business” or “leadership” books on the list – although there are myriads of them on the market. We have chosen only those kinds of books that we feel stand the test of time, will not fade with the latest fad, and will truly add a new dimension to your thought and development as a leader.
