Let’s go over some great articles and my latest Seth Godin books!
Book I read this week: Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us by Seth Godin. This is a tremendous book on leadership, although it is very different from your traditional business leadership books. Godin discusses creating change through groups of people passionate about an idea or topic. If you have passion for an idea, you can lead people with similar beliefs and build a movement that has lasting impact.
Book I’m reading next week: Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? by Seth Godin. I can’t wait for this one, as I have heard many people say that they like this book of his the best. In Linchpin he writes about being an artist and creating work that matters.
