Recently I posted a question on my Facebook page asking, “Which Leadership books have had the biggest impact on you and why?” and I received many, many fantastic responses from my Realtor friends across the country, local New Jersey friends and clients, and even best selling authors.    Comments varied from Steven Ligon’s, “At the risk of sounding trite, the Bible…the best examples of servant leadership are in the Bible. There are also great examples of leadership failure,” to Alex Charfen who said, “Think and Grow Rich, Born to Run, Unlimited Power, The Fighter’s Mind, Where Have all the Leaders Gone?, Power vs. Force : some of these are not considered leadership books but they should be. They have all had a profound impact on my life and business. ”

Short Hills resident, Caroline  Updyke and others really liked The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, stating, “It’s about character and principles and it’s one of my all time faves,” and best selling author of Seven Levels of Communication, Michael Maher, agreed and added dozens more to the list, including multiple biographies. Maher suggested you can find some great inspiration from Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, and many other leaders.  After a conversation with Adam Hergenrother, I started Psycho-Cybernetics, which is absolutely a life changing book. We even got a response from Mindy Hager, Gary Keller’s executive assistant on Gary’s favorite Leadership books: Optimal Stress  byCarol J. Scott, M.D. , Practice Made Perfect  by Roberto Moretti , Margin  by Richard A. Swenson, M.D., and Mastery by George Leonard .
