The Case of the Missing Cutlery: Kevin Allen: “Leadership isn’t static – it is going somewhere… a journey toward a fantastic goal.” Setbacks aren’t exceptions – they are an inextricable part of your journey. They are a gift – when things get real, and everyone is paying attention. The powerful leadership moments. Mutual respect and trust creates buoyancy – where we hold each other up because we chose to. Great stories, real life.

Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Patrick Lencioni – looking at the role of a leader as a pyramid – with vulnerability is the base. Human and real. Written as a fable - short and readable.
