Blaine Bartlett: Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business
#1 International Best Seller. Compassionate Capitalism is a brilliant, provocative book that has allowed me to see the emergence of a new business paradigm. The old industrial mind-set of scarcity, zero-sum games, and profit maximization worked well for a while but it’s now destroying the human spirit and fostering the degradation of our planet. On the other hand, Compassionate Capitalism (the emerging business paradigm) outlines a wonderful blueprint for businesses in which value, passion, relationships and a new mode of leadership will allow human beings to thrive and to “feel alive” at work.

Richard Strozzi-Heckler: The Leadership Dojo: Build Your Foundation as an Exemplary Leader
Profound and practical don't often go together and with this book Richard Strozzi-Heckler has managed to accomplish this rare feat. This book is one of the best treatments I've read on a topic as old as humankind. With humor, storytelling and a grasp of leadership that is truly masterful the author "leads" the reader on a journey exploring both what it means and what it takes to be an exceptional leader. It's a journey that culminates in viewing "leader" and "leadership" in a way that shatters stereotypes and makes the art of leadership accessible to any that are required to be leaders in their lives. Highly recommended!
