Here is a list of books, podcasts, blogs and other resources that I've mentioned and/or generally recommend. 

Townsend Leadership Program

I talk a lot about the Townsend Leadership Program (TLP) because this is the main tool I've used to accelerate my personal growth. The program includes one-on-one coaching and monthly meetings with my group. We are all working towards individual stretch goals in addition to general personal growth. Here are some helpful links if you'd like to learn more about the program.
