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 everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful 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.

I am so glad some people, like Simon, think deeply. He's given clarity to the fuzzy concept of integrity. What is it and how does it work. Back when I was working, the Chamber of Commerce had a certification program for quality. Fulfill the rigorous requirements and get certified and enjoy the marketing bennies of being able to say, we're certified. It did improve quality practices but I watched good companies fail. I wondered why and now I have the answer. Celery and splits!!

The essence of the Christian life is communion with God. To neglect him is to neglect the fount of the living, to toil and sweat from a thirsty heart. In this collection of short essays, Tozer calls us from the deserts we wander to the life we need: Christ Jesus the Lord.

I found this great for "trimming my sails." There are misconceptions passes around as truthful but often it's dis-information. Clearly, this guy has spent time at the Master's feet.

Blind Ambition is an autobiographical account of a young lawyer who accelerated to the top of the Federal power structure to become Counsel to the President at 30 years of age, only to discover that when reaching the top, he had touched the bottom. Most striking in this chronicle is its honesty. Dean spares no one, including himself. But, as Time noted, Dean survived, despite the opposition of powerful foe, because he had no false story to protect and he had an amazing ability to recall the truth.

Preoccupied, just getting my footing asvan adult, Watergate settled in my memory as a national tragedy. Names of key players were a jumble of familiar sounds and, oh, there are so many names. While listening, I found it helpful to pause and quickly search the Internet to learn a person's significance. The Reader's vocal variety made this production engaging and worthy of my investment.

When you really care about someone, it’s easy to get stuck in painful, even destructive patterns - caving in to a spouse’s manipulation, ignoring a live-at-home son’s irresponsibility, not confronting a friend’s addiction. We excuse people again and again, and then kick ourselves for not setting better boundaries. But this important audiobook, with its transformational tools from leading Christian counselor Tim Clinton and noted author Pat Springle, will guide you in not only breaking through to better relationships but making big changes for the better.

Good, succint overview of counselling goals and outcomes. A little too radical on the topic of forgiveness but that seems a popular trend these days. The other material outweighs this shortcoming.
