What has inspired you to be a better leader?


Starting today, we highlight one of your favorite books, culled from suggestions that SmartBrief on Leadership readers share with us. Today's recommendation comes from Rick Stamberger, CEO of SmartBrief:

"Self-Renewal: The Individual and the Innovative Society," by John Gardner

This was, according to Gardner, his most important book. Centered around the concepts of self knowledge, self development, courage to fail, motivation and love, the book speaks to the importance of "re-potting" ourselves as leaders.

What book would you recommend? How has it inspired you?
