Full Steam Ahead! by Ken Blanchard and Jesse Stoner Years ago, I worked with Ken and met Jesse Stoner. They just get smarter and smarter! They have put their masterful minds together to create a book on the power of vision to create focus and results in your company and your life. Don’t let the small size fool you. I found myself pondering for days just one of the chapters. Visions and mission are so misunderstood in today’s business jargon. Read and get clarity… all the way around!

GET YOUR SHIP TOGETHER-How Great Leaders Inspire Ownership From The Keel Upby Michael Abrashoff Mike and I met a few years ago at a conference. He had just left the Navy as captain of the USS Benfold, a $1 billion destroyer. Mike had been profiled in FAST COMPANY Magazine for his grassroots leadership techniques that increased a retention rate from 28% to 100%. Spend time with Mike and you know why. He recently sent me his second book. It’s just as chock-block filled with wisdom as the first. You don’t have to be in the Navy to run your business, department, or venture aground.
