Welcome to my Leadership and Development books page. You’ve guessed it, a page about books on leadership or my own personal development that I am either currently reading or that I intend to read.
The Book or Books That I’m Currently Reading
Ok, to start with I will list here any books that I am currently reading. It will probably be a very short list as I usually only read one or two books at a time!
So here goes, the book I am currently reading is The Miracle Morning: The 6 Habits That Will Transform Your Life Before 8AM and I’m currently about a third into it.
Books I Intend To Read
