Readings on Ethics, Conscience and Leadership

My book clubs are reading two great books this month. The underscore again, the need for good leadership and how it is not just a matter of following a checklist, or mouthing some mantra. Good leadership starts from within, from having the right moral compass, from leading by example, from doing the right thing, day in and day out.

My dad used to say: "99% of the time the easy part is knowing what's right to do. The hard part is actually doing it."

Here are the books:
The Light of Conscience, by Bill Shore
The Servant Leader , by James Autry

And, as an aside, the February issue of the Mission-Based Management Newsletter will be on Leadership. Should be finished and online later today or tomorrow.
