Marshall Goldsmith’s Five Essential Books on Leadership

Marshall Goldsmith’s Five Essential Books on Leadership

Marshall Goldsmith is consistently named to Forbes’ The World’s Most Influential Business Thinkers list and has been recognized as the top-rated executive coach at the Thinkers50 ceremony in London since 2011. Marshall is also an award-winning author, and his recent book, Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts—Becoming the Person You Want to Be, is a Wall Street Journal and New York Times #1 bestseller. I’m thrilled that he is my guest blogger today, sharing his five essential books on leadership.

Book 1: Old Path White Clouds: Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha

By Thich Nhat Hanh

This book makes me feel peaceful and content as I read it. It is very simple and very profound at the same time.

Book 2: Hesselbein on Leadership

By Frances Hesselbein

Peter Drucker said that Frances Hesselbein is the greatest leader he ever met. Read this book and you will agree with him!

Book 3: The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations

By Barry Posner and Jim Kouzes

One of the best books about leadership I’ve ever read!

Book 4: American Icon: Alan Mulally and the Fight to Save Ford Motor Company

By Bryce G. Hoffman

American Icon details the story of Alan Mulally at Ford Motor Company—and how he facilitated one of the greatest organizational turnarounds in modern history.

Book 5: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

By David Allen

Getting Things Done has helped me to not only get things done but to do more than I ever thought possible. It is simple and practical, and expands horizons!
