Readings on Leadership

From Seattle Pacific University faculty


Robert McKenna. Dying to Lead: Sacrificial Leadership in a Self-Centered World (Xulon Press, 2008).


In short chapters that include a good-humored teaching style and thought-provoking discussion questions, McKenna encourages all leaders to consider how their actions and attitudes affect those they lead. He also helps aspiring leaders know how to avoid common, destructive patterns.


Paul R. Yost and Mary Mannion Plunkett, Real Time Leadership Development (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009).


In this practical leadership manual, Yost and his industry co-author, Plunkett, provide guidance and tools grounded in extensive research. They focus on helping individuals develop leadership potential in themselves and in their organizations at the same time.
