Help Edit “The Power of One”!!

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

            27 November

             4 December

            11 December

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
