My Book Recommendations
by Patrick Lencioni. I really enjoy Lencioni's approach to leadership and the principles he advocates. This book was easily applicable and very practical for my own leadership. If you want to have some fresh leadership ideas stirred up in your mind, pick up this book. I am glad I did.
by Alfred Lansing. Ernest Shackleton was bound for Antarctica in order to cross on foot the last uncharted continent. The ship, the Endurance, set sail from England in August 1914 and by January 1915 became locked in an island of ice. For ten months the ice bound Endurance drifted northwest before it was finally crushed by the ice. This is a story of survival and courage. I loved this story. If you like a great story about the fight for life and survival, courage and strength, then you will love this story.
