Authentic and Winning books

Had a good set of book club discussions this week. Liked both the books we read,

Authentic Leadership, by Bill George and Winning, by Jack and Suzy Welch. I thought both books have a lot to offer nonprofits. Our discussions of Welch's book were more controversial, simply because Welch is. A number of participants told us that they read the book with its cover jacket (which features a big picture of Welch) off.

I can't tell you which is better. Both are well organized, and if you like checklists, Winning is the better choice. Both run down a bit at the end.

But two books to put on your list, for sure.
