Favorite Books

Here are a few of the books I recommend:

The first rule for any thought leader is that you have to build friends, fans and followers for your ideas. Sam Horn's book, Got Your Attention?, will teach you how to write and speak more clearly and effectively and gain others attention whether you are pitching a business, book, project or new vision for your community. Not only that, it is a fun read with tons of great ideas you can put to work immediately. Order here.

by appealing to both the rational mind and the emotional mind. Chock full of great examples, this book will inspire you to keep going and offer you a blueprint for how to move forward. Order here

Whether you are feeling stuck, facing roadblocks or burned out, Mary offers a set of simple steps that will allow you to easily and effortlessly find your way. This book helped me clear the path from my first book to my second and have fun along the way. Order here.

Sarah Miller Caldicott's book, Midnight Lunch: The 4 Phases of Team Collaboration Success from Thomas Edison's Lab, may have an unexpected name but I believe it will offer you lots of great ideas for how to bring teams along on your thought leadership journey. After all, effective change is really about teamwork and collaboration so why not learn from the master at both, Thomas Edison? Order here.
