The Lead Challenge 5th coverDecember starts off with a great gift as Jim Kouzes, best-selling co-author of The Leadership Challenge, returns with Robert Thompson and Mike Neiss to share leadership thoughts around some topics in the news today. Credibility and trust was the starting point and it didn’t take us long to jump on the launch of the Affordable Care Act and the dismal approval ratings of both Congress and the President. We tied that into the corporate sector and shared the connection with the average team leader in companies large and small.  Oh, and we had a few laughs as well. Thought Grenades is filled with practical, simple and effective ideas on how you can make a positive difference for yourself, your organization and the world.
