Okay. Maybe not 93% but there are tons of deals to be had. Holiday time is just around the corner and my guess is now that you’ve recovered from your turkey and football-induced food coma, you’re realizing you had better get cracking on getting holiday gifts for your boss, your team members, your customers, and every other professional in your network. In the spirit of the twelve days of Christmas, I made a little shopping list for you.
So in the hopes of saving you time, energy and effort scouring the web for the perfect gift options, I’ve compiled the below list of great gift ideas for those special people. The vast majority are books and most of those books have been featured here on the thoughtLEADERS Blog in the past year so I’ve also linked to the relevant blog post. So without further ado, I give to you 12 great gift ideas for the leaders in your life:
1. One Piece of Paper: The Simple Approach to Powerful, Personal Leadership
I would be a complete idiot not to have my own book as the first on the list. That said, I think it’s a great gift for any leader or aspiring leader in your life. It’ll help them better articulate who they are and who they want to be as leaders. It’s straightforward, entertaining, and – most importantly – pragmatic and practical.
2. Lead With a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives that Captivate, Convince, and Inspire
Paul Smith discusses the power of storytelling and how you can be a stronger leader by using that method to communicate. The book is chock full of great stories and clear, simple techniques you can use to be a better storyteller. Check out Paul’s guest blog post here.
