What are your favorite leadership books?
Throughout my time writing the #CJJblog I have constantly encouraged readers to grow your mind. As someone who practices what they preach, I make sure I am reading at least 30 minutes each day to grow my mind. This week I am starting the “Coach’s Dozen” and giving you my top 12 books within a certain category. Below are my top 12 books on leadership. Let me know which ones you have read and what you think of them. Enjoy.

True leaders take on responsibility for themselves. They do not pass blame onto others, nor do they make excuses for their mistakes and hardships. The books above illustrate the sides of leaders and what they are all about. If you wish to be a true leader, you must always look to grow not only yourself, but your team as well. Have a great weekend and let me know how I can help grow your mind. Which book is your favorite?
