    John Kotters now-legendary eight-step

    process for managing change with positive

    results has become the foundation for

    By outlining the process every organization

    must go through to achieve its goals, and by

    identifying where and how even top

    performers derail during the change process,

    Kotter provides a practical resource for

    leaders and managers charged with making

    change initiatives work.

    Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have

    written The New One Minute Manager to

    introduce the books powerful, important

    lessons to a new generation. In their concise,

    THE NEW ONE MINUTE MANAGER

  • J I M H A R T E R In this bestseller, Gallup presents the

    remarkable findings of its massive in-depth

    study of great managers. Some were in

    leadership positions. Others were front-line

    supervisors. Some were in Fortune 500

    companies; others were key players in small,

    entrepreneurial firms.This book explains

    how the best managers select an employee

    for talent rather than for skills or experience,

    set expectations, build on each persons

    unique strengths rather than trying to fix his

    or her weaknesses, and get the best

    performance out of their teams.

    Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the

    five dysfunctions which go to the very heart

    of why teams even the best ones-often

    struggle. He outlines a powerful model and

    actionable steps that can be used to

    overcome these common hurdles and build a

    cohesive, effective team. Just as with his

    other books, Lencioni has written a

    compelling fable with a powerful yet

    deceptively simple message for all those who

    strive to be exceptional team leaders.

  • P E T E R F . D R U C K E R The measure of the executive is the ability to

    "get the right things done." This usually

    involves doing what other people have

    overlooked as well as avoiding what is

    unproductive. Intelligence, imagination, and

    knowledge may all be wasted in an executive

    job without the acquired habits of mind that

    mold them into results.

    Ranging widely through the annals of

    business and government, Peter F. Drucker

    demonstrates the distinctive skill of the

    executive and offers fresh insights into old

    and seemingly obvious business situations.

  • R O B E R T I . S U T T O N In a landmark article published in the

    esteemed Harvard Business Review, Robert I.

    Sutton addressed a taboo topic that affects

    every workplace: employees who are

    insensitive to their colleagues, corporate

    bullies, bosses who just don't get it, the kind

    of people who make you exclaim in

    exasperation, "What an asshole!"

    Now, in a definitive book that addresses this

    growing problem, Sutton shows you how you

    can work with unsavory people without

    becoming one of them yourself.

    START WITH WHY shows that the leaders

    who've had the greatest influence in the

    world all think, act, and communicate the

    same way -- and it's the opposite of what

    idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a

    framework upon which organizations can be

    built, movements can be led, and people can

    be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.
