1) “Great By Choice” by Jim Collins – I find this to be an interesting perspective on why some companies thrive in uncertain and challenging circumstances while others do not in extreme environments. Great leaders were actually not higher risk-takers, visionaries or even more creative as we would expect but that they were in fact more disciplined, innovative and scaled their companies to ensure they achieved greatness.

2) “Profit in Plain Site” by Anne C. Graham – A new release with insightful and practical advice to help leaders immediately be more effective throughout their companies.

This book details a practical, yet insightful, action-focused process to assist those who are not satisfied with mediocre results to achieve a plan to have sustainable growth and profitability.

3) “The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland” by HRH Prince Michael of Albany – This book features astonishing insight into the political affairs of Scotland, its past and resulting historical suppressions.
