Bob’s newest book, Leadership Wisdom: Lessons from Poetry, Prose, and Curious Verse, will be released by Motivational Press soon.
The book is a compendium of timeless, inspiring wisdom on leadership from the sages of literature and outstanding leaders written over the centuries right up to the present day.
Bob has selected over 70 poems, prose, or speech passages, each with an insightful leadership message. He combines these pearls with engaging commentary from his own vast leadership experience and closes each entry with practical applications that each reader can use immediately.
You will hear from an astonishing array of poets, presidents, activists, soldiers, educators, journalists, CEOs, and even unknown authors. You will be exposed to biblical passages, several faith traditions, and Native American wisdom.
This treasure trove will activate your creative right-brain and then challenge your logical left-brain.
The Foreword, written by noted leadership authorities, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, captures it well:
“This is an inspiring book … an informative and practical book … a book full of the author’s personal reflections, which stimulates you to think deeply … an antidote to the hubris of know-it-all executives and authors … a fast-read book; however, read it slowly, and savor it to the last drop. This book will surprise you with its insights and simple truths. This book is a treasure…”
