What are the best Leadership books you've read, and been able to apply successfully for Project Management success?
Background: PMI's "Pulse of the Profession In-Depth Report" on the topic "Navigating Complexity" featured results of a very important study on the most critical skills to manage complex projects to success.
Not surprisingly, "Leadership" was the #1 skill with 81% responses.
The next closest were each at just 9%: "Technical Project Management Skills" and "Strategic and Business Management Skills."

Nice thread. Karthik, it would be greatly helpful if you kept a consolidated list in the topic section. Though I too am not surprised by the results, I am by the drop-off.

I really enjoyed "The Wisdom of Crowds". It's an interesting contrast to what I held as conventional wisdom that decision by committee is inherently bad. It describes how under the right conditions, the inputs of many non-experts can be more effective than a few gurus.
