Our selection of leadership books that every leader should start reading!

"The most important books every leader should start reading now!"

Yet another book list!

Welcome to the Global Leadership Society's prestigious Top 100 Best Leadership Books of all time! But hold on a second—why yet another list? The answer is simple: the existing selections don't quite hit the mark for us!

Many lists vacillate between airport "bestseller" collections, offering popular titles devoid of credible academic backing, stacks of academic textbooks too esoteric for real-world practitioners, or simply highly subjective recommendations based on idiosyncratic preferences. The trouble lies in the ambiguity surrounding the criteria used for selection: Who precisely are the books intended for? What exactly is the understanding of leadership? What development model is implied? Who stands behind the list, and what's their purpose? The absence of clarity results in compilations that are both incoherent and fail to explore the depth and range necessary for genuine leadership development. Our mission is to bridge this gap. 

This task is undeniably complex. It also means that our selection won't be a one-size-fits-all:

  1. Who is our list for: Our list is crafted for seasoned leaders embarking on a journey beyond conventions. These are individuals who have skimmed the shelves of airport books, absorbed the (limited) wisdom of popular TED talks, yet find themselves still hungry for more. It's tailored for those who have achieved success in their careers but crave for deeper understanding and impact, and designed to support those who are aspiring to leave a positive legacy by becoming the very best leaders they can be. For this audience, deeper transformation is the goal, and time is a precious commodity.
  2. What is our understanding of leadership: Leadership for us is not merely about individual development and far from one-dimensional; it requires individuals in leadership roles to spark and contribute to a systemic process of collective development that bridges diverse stakeholders, different levels of inquiry, and numerous disciplines. Therefore, in order to be effective, good leaders must grasp a wide spectrum of knowledge, spanning management, economics, psychology, philosophy, history, political science, and beyond. (For more details see our model below.)
  3. What is our purpose: Our ambition extends beyond providing just another list of popular books. We aspire to support a transformative journey for a new breed of leaders—individuals poised to mould organizations that can steer us towards a brighter future of work. Our carefully chosen books are meant to accompany, enlighten, cradle, and guide them to acquire the competences required, and thus develop greater wisdom. 
The outcome is a highly distinctive collection. We refrain from ranking books, and completeness is not our primary goal. Instead, our intention is to present a carefully curated selection of the finest books that empower leaders to develop specific competencies and progress to the next level within a coherent leadership development model. For each book on our list, there will be a range of suitable alternatives; our objective is to include only those that best match our stringent selection criteria, ensuring the minimum number of books to cover all necessary competencies. In essence, while other lists revolve around good books, our list revolves around good leaders!

We wish you joy on a unique and insightful journey through the best in leadership literature, handpicked by ourselves and many peers!

Selection Process

Amidst our pre-selection phase, we're thrilled to unveil an initial book list, curated with insights from our community members and inspired by our ongoing 'Leaders for Humanity' interview series.

Our commitment is to refine this selection throughout 2024, officially introducing one category each quarter. Subsequent updates will continuously enhance the list in lock step with our "good leadership foundation course."

We're actively seeking fresh ideas and suggestions! Drop us an email at info@leadershipsociety.world with your preferred titles, briefly indicating the category your book belongs to, the specific competencies it aids leaders in acquiring, and how it excels against our selection criteria. Your input is invaluable—we'd love to hear from you!

Selection Criteria for books in each category:


Based on credibility of the author as well as academic research or well-rounded theories. Determine if the propositions and principles discussed in the book are derived in a transparent and logical manner; evaluate whether the book was appreciated and discussed seriously by other (critical) thinkers.


How effectively does the book provoke critical thinking, encourage liminal perspective-taking, and facilitate a structured evaluation of the world? Consider if it challenges traditional thinking and offers new and deeper insights or frameworks.


How effectively is the book written, and to what extent does it motivate readers to embark on a courageous quest for deeper development? Consider reader reviews and recommendations and appreciate the writing style and accessibility of the book.


How effective is the book in providing guidance for practical changes to oneself, others, and the organization? Scrutinize its capacity to offer actionable insights, checking for elements such as case studies, tools, or tips that enhance its practicality and applicability.

Developing Good Leadership


Any credible selection of leadership books must commence with an appropriate definition of the inherently ambiguous concept of leadership. Following the Global Leadership Society's provisional definition, leadership we delineate leadership as a "systemic process of generative collective learning and action to create a Good Society - catalyzed by Good Leaders."

This definition propels us beyond individualistic perspectives, emphasizing collective organizational capacities to act interdependently for the greater good of people, society, and the planet. Good Leadership necessitates a "nodal" co-elevation of stakeholders, society, and the ecosystem, fostering communal inspiration and the cultivation of virtues, moral identity, and character to facilitate collective and ecological flourishing. 

The role of “Good Leaders” thus extends beyond conventional notions. They are tasked with embodying, protecting, evolving, inspiring, and serving as role models for the "good" that the organization stands for. Good leaders operate both "in the system" as they cultivate individual and team excellence and "on the system" as they intentionally shape organizational practices and institutions to safeguard and enable the organization's good purpose. 

How is Leadership Developed? (Draft)

The second crucial consideration for selecting leadership books involves a perspective on leadership development. This not only involves assessing which  leadership competencies are essential for leaders' growth, but also requires examining how any form of written knowledge could meaningfully contribute to increasing their proficiency Recognizing that books probably play a modest role in the broader challenge of leadership formation, our approach is grounded in two specific assumptions:

Firstly, concerning content, our leadership development model pivots around the concept of "practical wisdom." This encompasses the capacity of leaders to make and enact sound decisions in the face of uncertainty and potential value conflicts. In our model, individual leaders' wisdom is "scaled" into the organization. In practical terms, this implies that effective organizational leaders must concurrently cultivate competencies falling into four interrelated categories of knowledge:

Personal and Relational Leadership

A robust grasp of diverse psychological leadership development approaches serves as the foundation. Guided by this understanding, leaders actively nurture personal growth and heightened relational awareness and sensitivity within themselves, their teams, and the broader community. Notably, leaders strive to expand their and their organisation's circle of care continually.

Ethical Leadership

Fostering a perceptive and critical comprehension of reality, moral, and political development. The goal is to enhance the collective capacity within oneself and the organization to independently make informed judgments and take responsible decisions. This process involves thoughtful consideration of all stakeholders while striving for justice and the common good.

Organisational Leadership

Cultivating a thorough and discerning understanding of organizational behavior, change dynamics, and innovative management approaches. The objective is to drive the evolution of organizational policies, structures, and character, thereby enhancing the organization's capacity to co-elevate and collaboratively generate solutions for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Ecosystemic Leadership

Cultivating an expansive and diverse understanding of business within larger systems, fostering the ability to harness capabilities beyond the organisation and envision and experiment with innovative solutions that not only benefit customers but also contribute to a just and sustainable economy.

Secondly, concerning didactics, we firmly believe that books should not merely be credible; they should also illuminate new perspectives, ignite inspiration, and provide actionable guidance, thereby making a tangible and meaningful impact. This is reflected in our specific selection criteria above.
