It’s June already! Trees and plants have already bloomed, birds are singing, Johnny is counting down to his big trip to the dog park, and readers everywhere are looking forward to their summer reading.

Per tradition (at this point), I will be starting my summer reading with "Peter Rabbit" and ending with "To Kill a Mockingbird," but in between, there are some wonderful new titles that are being released this summer. Here's one that will surely inspire you.

How the Best Leaders Energize People Every Day
By Kristi Hedges

This outstanding leadership book by Executive coach Kristi Hedges might just change your life. She refutes myths about executive leadership and argues that any employee, manager, or CEO can inspire others, the same way any child can grow up to be president. You can learn the skills that can allow you to become someone others want to follow.

In this well-researched book, Hedges argues that genuine communication moves people to action. She argues that being authentic and invested in conversations, while displaying genuine emotions can make you an inspirational leader. This book is not only a must-read, it's an easy read. It's so engaging that you'll find yourself turning the pages without even realizing it.
