Over my career, I realized that I am a learning junkie regarding the topics of leadership and building values-based organizations to get things done. Books, classes, gifted speakers, movies, music, sports; I am grateful there is so much content available. I continue to believe that we all have things to learn regardless of what stage we are in of our careers and crafts. If you are new to this arena, where to start? The resource page displays some of my favorite books and training classes. I invite you to view. All are personally tested.

Happy Learning
