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. So, just for fun - and showing the true importance of the books now seen as classics - I would like to return to the several books cited 20 years ago. Full Story

Column: Gamers, grandchildren and green tea wisdom
02/02/2015 11:23 AM MST - Since starting this FCBJ column on leadership in 1994, I have cited more than 100 books as sources of ideas and inspiration.
