Wanted: Leaders For Our Times

Ever have a love/hate relationship? That’s what I have been having with Moral Leadership for a Divided Age. I love this book. I hate this book. I am inspired. I want to scream. Why did they do this to me? The premise is simple enough. If you want to understand leadership, just look at leaders. […]

The Hospitable Leader

I like food, which makes me no different from anyone else. Until I read The Hospitable Leader though, I hadn’t given much thought to the role food plays in effective leadership. Terry A.

The Pollsters’ Nightmare

Instead of hanging up I listened, even though it was an automated call. As the machine recited the choices I could see the looming problem.
