    People are drawn to, and influenced by, leaders who communicate authentically, connect with people, and have immediate impact. So how do you become one? How can you learn to “own the room?” This book will help you develop your leadership presence. The authors offer a simple and compelling framework as well as practices for developing your "signature voice." Wherever you sit in an organization, you can develop presence if you are able to do two things well: demonstrate your authentic value and distinction; and connect to others in a positive way.

  • Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living your Dreams

    Manifesting our dreams isn't about hard work -- it's about belief, expectation and, above all, knowing the truth about our place in the universe. Mike Dooley's manifesto, Infinite Possibilities, affirms that in our world of illusions there is no finite allotment of whatever your heart desires, especially not happiness, and that experiencing more love and new possibilities is limited only by the scope of our ability to imagine and act upon each.

    Very good insight into relationships but a little too dramatic. There are many tricks that will help any relationship to get better however it gets to a point where it is way to deep, too dramatic and almost painful to hear.

  • So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love

    In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed - preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work - but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do.

    Give listener points to remember. One, two, three
