Leadership & Self Deception: Getting out of the box
By the Arbinger Institute
Shows how most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known problem called "self-deception."

This powerfully simple book/story gets right to the heart of the human dilemma. Why is it that we do the things that we don't want to do to the people it matter most. What is going on and how to get out of it. The work has had a remarkable impact on my life. It is a simple read, but when it hits it can hurt the soul and make you want to be better.


I had the fortune of meeting Ben McConnell last summer when we brought him in to speak about Creating Customer Evangelists to the Twin Cities chapter of Fast Company's Readers' Network.

Here are the tenants of
CreatingCustomer Evangelists:

  1. Customer plus-delta: Continuously gather customer feedback.
  2. Napsterize knowledge: Make it a point to share knowledge freely.
  3. Build the buzz: Expertly build word-of-mouth networks.
  4. Create community: Encourage communities of customers to meet and share.
  5. Make bite-size chunks: Devise specialized, smaller offerings to get customers to bite.
  6. Create a cause: Focus on making the world, or your industry, better.

The book goes into much greater detail and actual experiences and success stories for each and overall CCE success stories. Well researched and worth the read.


Leading The Revolution cover imageLeading the Revolution
By Gary Hamel
Incredible!   By far the leader of the pack in management consulting.  He is tired of organizations which evolve, create the double stuff oreo cookie, "rightsize" and generally burn up old wealth.  He believes we must create NEW WEALTH.  This is done through REVOLUTIONARY thinking.  This is a must read for all business executives, entrepreneurs, change agents and business students. 

Think-- Radical Innovation

Six Thinking Hats:by Edward De Bono; 173pages - I read a chapter per workout on the stairmaster -seemed to work out just fine.

De Bono resets the way meetings function to communicate information, brainstorm and create new ideas. It has been nearly 15 years since it was first published. The revised edition brings in real world examples of this work with phenomenal success. Using this method he shows how what would have been a frustrating four hour meeting can be reduced to 45 minutes with impact and intention.
