What I Learned About Influence from Peter Drucker
by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2014
“The great majority of people tend to focus downward. They are occupied with efforts rather than results. They worry over what the organization and their superiors ‘owe’ them and should do for them.

It's Time to Become the Boss: Individual Contributor vs. Leader
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2014
In writing my new book, Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders, I found that one of the biggest mistakes new leaders make is assuming the skills that got them promoted will be the ones they use in their new management roles.
