I recommend that everyone read "The Art of Possibility" by Benjamin Zander and Rosamund Stone Sander. The book provides a unique approach to giving people the benefit of the doubt and using leadership to help others find for themselves. It offers a fresh perspective at leading and helping others lead in today's hyper-competitive landscape. Another important book is Patty Azzarello's book "Rise." Patty offers some powerful advice on how to be authentic while still leading – and why everything you do impacts the bottom line.
