  1. Almost Christian‘s definitely on my list, too. Also, anything by Ruth Barton’s usually fantastic…I’m currently going through Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership.

      I’ve read Ruth Barton’s Strengthening your Soul book. Real good stuff. I also liked her at SYMC last year. (don’t know why others didn’t). There is a blog post somewhere in here about her… I meandered over to your blog as well, liked the first few blogs, clicked the follow button on google reader, so I hope to be reading more of what you have to say in the future!
