Answering Leadership Questions

Ace 1000s of Interview Q&As

Which leadership book have you most recently read?

Example #1
"The leadership book that I most recently read was 'The 10X Rule,' by Grant Cardone. He speaks not only of being a winner, at the front of the pack, but also giving your absolute best in everything that you do. It's one of my favorites, and I read it every year."
Example #2
"Just this past week, I read 'Daring Greatly' by Brene Brown. The author is well-known in the personal growth space, and this particular book touches on vulnerability and setting out to be extraordinary in all that we do."
Example #3
"My absolute favorite book on leadership and one that has shaped my management style is 'The New One Minute Manager' by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. It's an older book, originally written in 1982, with a newly revised version. The publication discusses the concept of one-minute goals, one-minute praisings, and one-minute reprimands when necessary. Have you read it?"
Example #4
"I have read many wonderful books on leadership! Most recently, I have read 'The Five Dysfunctions of a Team' by Patrick Lencioni. I recently heard that many NFL coaches implement the concepts addressed in this book. The dysfunctions the author includes are the absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results."
Example #5
"Right now, I am reading 'How to Win Friends and Influence People.' I know it's an oldie, but Dale Carnegie is a staple in the business world, and I believe everyone can learn a great deal from him. I plan to read all of his books, and I encourage my team to do the same."
Example #6
"The best leadership book I have read, and I am currently reading it for the third time, is 'Good to Great' by Jim Collins. It's a book about leadership and companies in general. I have learned a lot about what separates a good company from a great company, and how most companies are never excellent and why."
Example #7
"I am currently reading "Leaders Eat Last" by Simon Sinek. I like Sinek's teaching because his concepts are realistic and insightful. This particular book focuses on why some teams pull together and why some do not. I plan to take what I learn and implement it in my classrooms, encouraging my students to pull together."
