Column: Leadership defined in literature
03/03/2015 08:06 PM MST - This monthly column on leadership in the FCBJ started 20 years ago. Writing this has been a privilege and pleasure for me during all of those years, with just a few months missed for personal or professional reasons. During those two decades, multiple hundreds of books in English on leadership have appeared each year, with usually two or three new ones being used each month in this column.
