We currently run two Leadership Foundations programs a year.  The Winter 2018 program is full, and the next program is planned for Fall 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.

In conjunction with Leadership Foundations, we are continuing to roll out the NY Leader Forum (www.nyleaderforum.com), which is a place for leaders to connect with each other in conversation about leading and growing extraordinary teams and organizations.  Take a look at our weekly “Leader Jams” if you are interested in cutting-edge content that will keep you thinking about topics that are important for leaders.

From our bookshelf:

We recently read and discussed the book 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 this year 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 we are currently reading and definitely worth checking out are:

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.
