You Lead – Extra Resources

This page provides extra resources for those who have read You Lead, How Being Yourself Makes You A Better Leader.

The book is available at all the best known etailers, including Amazon everywhere. I’d also like to call out Bookshop.org (helping independent books stores) and Kogan’s own site.

Recommended Reading

  • Dare to Lead by Dr. Brené Brown. This New York Times bestselling book is almost a summary of Brown’s best work. The core concepts that Brown delivers include the power of vulnerability and courage. Find more here
  • Marketing Lessons from The Grateful Dead by David Meerman Scott and Brian Halligan. This is a book I wish I had written! If the Dead didn’t start off thinking explicitly about their business model and marketing manner, the way they went about their business was entirely innovative and prescient for the Internet-infused world. Via Wiley
  • Why We Sleep by Dr. Matthew Walker. With the entrance of sleep as an official academic topic, Dr Walker’s book provides a strong introduction into the marvels of sleep and how we can get a better night’s rest. Via Penguin
  • The New Art of Time (original in French: Le Nouvel Art du Temps) by Jean-Louis Servan-Schreiber. This short book, updated for the world of the Internet, really crystallized my approach to time. Find more here.
  • Lost Connections by Johann Hari. Where I believe that a great leader needs to be the Connector-in-Chief, I also subscribe to the power of connecting in with yourself, your community and with the marvels of nature. If Hari’s book delves into the issue of depression, it also looks at how the individual and society should reconfigure to ensure a healthy and energetic future in this connected world. Find more here.
  • How to Change our Mind by Michael Pollan. As companies look to transform in order to compete in the digital world, I’ve long held that it’s about changing mindsets and culture rather than investing in new technologies. Pollan’s book could even bear clues for how to change the minds of well people and business leaders. Find more here.
  • Discover your True North by Bill George. An insightful book on how to be authentic leader. Find more here.
  • Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. It may be a relatively old book, but its content is so relevant today. It’s impossible not to read it if you want to evolve into being a meaningful leader. Find more here.
