Lt Col Brasse's recommended readings...



...Shares methods of sharing connection and compassion to improve leadership communication.

20201211_Weekly_Vol LXV (7-11 Dec)

I enjoyed picking and choosing from his book the various historical examples. It's well used in universities in support of MBA programs but he is a long term proponent of effective leadership.

20201106_Weekly_Vol LXI (2-6 November)

Interesting discussion using decades of research to see key traits and core principles necessary for successful leadership.

-- Lt Col Brasse 

20201023_Weekly_Vol LIX (19-23 October)

A bit more business oriented than most but some good discussions on how participation that is not transactional is better for everyone in the organization, including the giver. Quote from the book, "But most of life isn't zero-sum, and on balance, people who choose giving as their primary reciprocity style end up reaping rewards. For Lincoln, like David Hornik, seemingly self-sacrificing decisions ultimately worked to his advantage."
