High-Achieving Leaders: Nally’s Reading List

Are you looking for some leadership insights and a new summer read? Check out these leadership books about high-achieving leaders and why Mike Nally recommends them!

  1. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. In this book, Gladwell challenges the idea that success is solely found by intelligence, ambition, or hard work. He explores how people’s successes are influenced by external factors (such as culture, family, and life experiences) that society usually overlooks. • “Gladwell is readable, relatable, and memorable. You will be retelling his stories in Outliers for a long time. He shares another perspective on the factors that contribute to extraordinary results. ” – Mike Nally •
  2. Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. Covey’s seven habits guide the reader to adapt to change effectively and capitalize on the opportunities that emerge from its challenges. • “This book is an excellent guide for goal setting, time management, and personal improvement. Covey translates common problems into a repeatable process.” – Mike Nally •
  3. Servant Leadership by Robert Greenleaf. This book advocates for leaders who prioritize serving others, fostering trust, collaboration, and empowerment. It emphasizes sustainable change by helping leaders discover true moral authority and empowering those they serve to become healthier and more autonomous. This approach benefits leaders of all group types. • “This book will be transformational for some. I wish it were more widely read and quoted. Greenleaf tells us all how we can make a difference through service and how leaders today, can make a difference for the next generation of leaders.”- Mike Nally •
