2019 Coast Guard’s Professional Development Reading List

“As I visit Coast Guard units around the world, I am inspired by the passion and commitment of our Coast Guard women and men. To capitalize on that, this year we are transitioning from a Commandant’s Reading List to a Coast Guard Professional Development List with recommendations from across the workforce. This list offers a broad range of subject matter—from history to leadership to innovation—and represents the diverse ideas and perspectives that contribute to our greatest strength, our people. As shared in the Coast Guard Strategic Plan, professional development and continuous learning ensures we remain ready to confront our complex operating environment today and tomorrow.” -Adm. Karl Schultz, Commandant
