This week I had a Diamond leader in the company I work with ask me, Dale what are your favorite personal development books? As I was putting together the list, I realized what a positive impact these books had on me over the years. At age 20 I set a goal to read 20 books a year, and I have maintained that pace for the past 30 years. Wow I am getting old , so when I made my list of 20 it was a real experience.
So why am I sharing this with you?
Oh course my list consisted of the classics like Think & Grow Rich, The Magic of Thinking Big, & The Magic or Believing which 70% of the people that visit this website have probably read. Here is my point. There were other books on my list like Chicken to an Eagle, and The 7 Day Mental Diet that I am sure many of you have never read. These books are not to be missed, they are both awesome.
If you would like to check out my complete list of 20 books they are located on our private team training website. You can access it here:
Readers are leaders. As I think back about the organizations and people I have worked with over the years, I can say that without question the Top people I have had the pleasure to work with were all readers and understood we are in the people development and leadership development business. "If you build people, people build the business".
