Leadership is hot. Anywhere you go, there is a need for people who inspire, make things happen, respond to a changing landscape, provide a vision for a brighter future, and bring out the best in people.

One of my favorite new books is The Undefeated Mind, by Dr. Alex Lickerman. It’s a powerful book that helps you cultivate your inner strength to face hard times with a fearless heart. It's more than a book. It's a set of tools for life.
