Are You a Leader?

Women's Leadership Exchange

I awoke early this morning my head singing the hit song"Tonight's going to be a good night." A strange song to awaken me, yet a good one.a good good one. I internalize it as meaning "today's going to be a good day." I open the book to the sub-chapter "Leadership is Contagious." What do I read from the book this early morning?

Cultures in conflict

Managing Leadership

Yesterday we talked about the value of reading non-management books. And, by the way, if Michael Wade recommends a book, consider putting it on your list.).
