Reading List

Once in a while a really great book comes along; one with ideas that can truly transform industries, change people’s hearts, or provide tools that help lift a successful organization into significance.

We have a few favorite authors. Some are personal friends, others are colleagues we’ve met once or twice; most we don’t know at all, except for their work and reputations.

However, we consider each our teacher.

Following are our favorites in no particular order. These are the books we return to over and over again — the ones that have helped shape our work, consulting and advising our clients. We hope you’ll find them useful, too.
