The Magic in the Right Questions by Bill Mayer

In his motivational book, Bill Mayer shows us how by asking "empowering" questions of ourselves instead of disempowering questions, we can improve our lives. Bill tells us that we become what we think about so shows us how to use the right questions to focus in a positive way. For example, rather than ask "Why did this happen to me?" Bill suggests we ask "What's great about this?"


Leadership from the Inside Out by Kevin Cashman

Kevin Cashman challenges us to consider that leadership isn't only something we do, but rather an expression of who we are. This book provides an opportunity for self-reflection as well as practical tools to get to the essence of leadership: authentic self-expression that creates value.
