I'll read anything James Macgregor Burns wrote and
I tackled this one, Leadership, years ago. It has been nice to come back to the audio version for a refresher on good writing on what makes a good leader. One of the initial comments he makes is both timely and relevant and says something about how things change and yet, also remain the same. “The crisis of leadership today is the mediocrity or irresponsibility of so many men and women in power…" Of course, Burns has studied two of most popular and venerated presidents, FDR, and JFK. In doing so, he has learned a great deal about many aspects of leadership and its operation in various contexts as well. Well-worth your time in my opinion, whether you are starting out on your own leadership journey or where you are looking back on a lifetime of experiences.
