Dear Subscribers (5500 of you at the moment),

If willing, you are about to help create a new book, The Daily Practices of Leading Others, one page at a time. In this new e-zine format, we will examine the attributes of the New Leader – through inspiration, elaboration, stories, best references, and practice activities. If you have feedback or wish to share ideas, please contact me. At the end of 100 or so practices, we will see if we have a book.

Thank you for joining or remaining in our learning community. Look for good ideas to come!

– M. K.
