•  “Innovation” – The authors provide a systematic way to make innovation practical. Innovation is not about inventing clever gadgets. It is the successful creation and delivery of a new or improved product or service that provides value for your customer and sustained profit for your organization.

•  “The Click Moment” – This book describes success as being random – far more random than people would like to believe. A common theme among successful people and organizations is that a turning point occurs – a major client signs on, a new competitor redefines the market, an unlikely idea surfaces – and they take advantage of that serendipity to change their fate.

•  “Tribal Leadership” – Drawing on an eight-year study of about 24,000 people in more than two dozen corporations, the authors define a common theme: The success of a company depends on its tribes; the strength of its tribes is determined by the tribal culture, and a thriving corporate culture can be established by an effective tribal leader. This book shows leaders how to assess their organization’s tribal culture and implement specific tools to elevate their company to the next stage. MCT and Booksamillion.com
