•  “Thinking in New Boxes” – To make sense of the world, we all rely on assumptions and models, or what Luc de Brabandere and Alan Iny call “boxes.” If we are unaware of our boxes, they can blind us to risks and opportunities.

•  “Nice Companies Finish First” – The era of authoritarian cowboy CEOs like Jack Welch and Lee Iacocca is over. In an age of increasing transparency and access, it just doesn’t pay to be a jerk – to employees, customers, competitors, or anyone else. The author explores the new hallmarks of effective leadership, including loyalty, optimism, humility and a reverence for customer service.

•  “Forever Cash” – The author escaped the “hamster wheel of financial hell” to retire at the age of 37. He now shares his strategies around the world teaching that anyone can reach financial freedom by following simple, proven strategies. MCT, 800-CEO-READ
