From The Power of Servant Leadership by Robert K. Greenleaf
I do believe that we should always reach for our potential; There is always something to learn. However, sociology major undergrad that I am, I realize the importance of dynamics with people. So I also recommend reading 151 Quick Ideas to Improve Your People Skills by Robert E. Dittmer and Stephanie McFarland.
And while we are on the topic of institutional/personal potential and communication skills VERSUS the mentality that the person with the most power (e.g. loudest voice, strongest kick) K.O.s ... OK's the role of leader ... try The Gentle Art of Communicating with Kids: From Toddlers to Teens by Suzette Haden Elgin, Ph.D.
I'm liking that I can now rightfully post
images of book covers
that I find fascinating
and appropriate to the topics of this blog.
Enjoy ... and please feel free to make a comment!
