What better time than now to focus on your professional development and refine your leadership skills? But with so many great learning and development resources available, how do you choose where to start?
Participating in a book club is a fantastic way to hone your leadership skills while bouncing ideas off trusted peers. While you can take this approach with any book, you might consider SPARK: How to Lead Yourself and Others to Greater Success by Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch and Sean Lynch. The authors have released a complimentary facilitator guide and discussion questions to simplify your book club experience.
Finished SPARK already? Use the facilitator guide as a framework and apply it to another book. Below are a handful of other LMA favorites.
- The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
- The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss
- The Start-Up of You by Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha
- How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
- Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler
- Leading Change by John Kotter

So what are you waiting for? Grab your colleagues, friends or LMA family and take time to focus on you by developing your leadership skills.
