Management and leadership books I read in the last 5 years

In 2016 I become a Scrum master on a enterprise project and was tasked with helping create a great Dynamics 365 team and I started out on my journey to improve the skills needed to lead.

I started reading books on the following subjects

  • Management
  • Leadership
  • Coaching
  • Presence
  • Communication
  • Scrum/Agile
  • DevOps
  • Persuasion

I read autobiographies of business people, football coaches and NFL coaches. I did read a bunch of other books on other subjects too :-). I worked in technical environment the most important of projects and a company is the people.

I wanted to help people on the team reach their potential and for me to do that I needed to improve my leadership, communication and coaching skills. So I focused my energies on improving these areas by reading, thinking, reflecting and doing.

Books are a great way to learn new ideas and I encourage everyone to read more books. Looking at all the book (just on those areas) it seems like a lot of money and time but these books have changed how I see the world and were worth the investment.

The other thing you can tell is I am a big NFL fan and support the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick
