Leadership Foundations:

Picture eight people like you meeting five times over the course of two months to learn how to be more effective leaders.  What you learn through this experience will make a significant positive impact in your life.  We run two Leadership Foundations programs a year.  The Fall program is set to start on October 4, 2018.  If you live in the Hudson Valley, NY region and are interested, go here to find out more and sign up. Let us know if you have questions.

From our bookshelf:

Our current featured book is Great at Work, by Morten T. Hansen.   Hansen reports on a five-year study looking at how top performers do less, work better, and achieve more. The first insight Hansen reports on is the idea that top performers “Do less, and then obsess.” That concept resonates with us!  Get a copy of the book and start reading.  We will begin our discussions the week of May 14th (follow on twitter).

Our last featured book was Great by Choice, by Jim Collins and Morten T. Hansen. It is a phenomenal book.  This summary we wrote will make you want to read it or, if you already have, it will be a great review.

Another book we featured recently is Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, by Liz Wiseman, with Greg McKeown and Foreword by the late Stephen R. Covey.    

The book Multipliers explains why some leaders create genius all around them while others drain intelligence and capability from an organization.

Two books on our shelf that are definitely worth checking out include:

Lead and Disrupt: How to Solve the Innovator’s Dilemma, by Charles A. O’Reilly III and Michael L. Tushman.

And, An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization, by Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey.
