Stroll through the business and leadership section at a bookstore and you’ll find thousands of titles promising business success through better communication, collaboration, compassion and creativity.
These books often have fanciful names like “Who Moved My Cheese?” or “What Color Is Your Parachute?” But the ideas are less than colorful–tired, warmed-over business school mantras that evaporate in the fast-paced, high-pressure professional world.
Editor’s note: David is a public relations executive, copywriter and all-around word junkie and occasional InCommons blog and newsletter editor/contributor. He first met Drew Dudley at a conference and was immediately inspired to share his philosophy on leadership with the InCommons community.
Earlier this year, guest blog author Hannah Lieder shared her story of courageous leadership in South Minneapolis as she took a local issue with broad social implications all the way to the halls of the Minnesota State Legislature.
