As you know, my first book, “The Power of One: Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times” was taken out of print this year, after an amazing run of THREE DECADES in continuous print. Although the concepts are as relevant as ever, a lot of the references are… old, downright creaky. (B.C. = before cellphones!)
So, our goal is to bring the book up to the 21st Century, with new examples and a better flow.
And… a new section. Along with getting the existing sections more up to date, I will be adding a new Part Five on “The Nature of Leadership”.
I’ve known for a long time that my ideas flow best when I am communicating with others. There is something about the creative process that goes better with others. So, what I want to do is “talk” about “The Nature of Leadership” with you and others. This will take place in 4 to 6 Zoom calls, of 60 to 90 minutes each. (You are free to attend any or all of the sessions. The sessions will be available live and recorded.)
Dates: 20 November
Times: 7:00 to 8:30pm (Pacific)
Format: I will present a sub-section, we will discuss it together, then present another. These discussions will form the centerpiece of the new chapter. (To see the new sub-sections, scroll down.)
Recordings: Each session will be recorded and available for five days from the time of the original broadcast. If you cannot attend live, you can comment via recording.
Cost: While this event is FREE, registration is a MUST. Please fill out the sign-up form here

I still have some of the original copies of “The Power of One” available for sale. These will be collectors items, and are each individually autographed and numbered, and come with a specially written afterword.
Now is your time to buy a piece of history. Right now, my plan is to sell these 100 books as a “limited edition” numbered offering. This will include:
- a personalized autograph
- a series number
- the inclusion of these “end of copy” notes.
- a small surprise
The limited edition will cost $24, including shipping & handling.
