Reading update

This is post #100 for my blog! Seems like that’s a pretty big milestone, and I’m proud to have lasted this long. Thanks for taking an interest in reading my thoughts!

It’s been another quarter, so time for another update on the books I’ve read:

  • Getting Naked, by Patrick Lencioni
  • The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do, by Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller
  • Forgotten God, by Francis Chan
  • The Divine Commodity, by Skye Jethani
  • While You Were Micro Sleeping, by Steve Moore
  • The Two Towers, by J.R. Tolkien (to my boys)

I’m currently reading:

  • The Speed of Trust, by Stephen M.R. Covey
  • Leading Across Cultures: Effective Ministry and Mission in the Global Church, by James E. Plueddemann
  • Servant Empowered Leadership, by Don Page
  • The Dark Side of Leadership, by Gary L. McIntosh and Samuel D. Rima
  • The Missional Leader, by Alan Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk

On my nightstand to read next:

  • Something in fiction. Maybe something by Michael Connelly.
  • Made to Stick, by Chip and Dan Heath
  • The Leadership Challenge, by Kouzes and Posner
  • Helping People Win at Work, by Ken Blanchard
  • Start with Why, by Simon Sinek
  • A Sense of Urgency, by John Kotter
  • Crazy Love, by Francis Chan
  • The Return of the King, by J.R. Tolkien (to my boys)

While I liked Lencioni’s new book, and it’s probably my favorite of my recent readings, I’m not sure any of this list will end up transforming my view of leadership over the long term. How about you? Have any of these books been transformative for you?
