 “Three books I’ve enjoyed that focus on making an impact as a professional or a leader are  – First Break all The Rules by Buckingham and Coffman  – Drive by Daniel Pink  – many books by John Maxwell. I like Daniel Pink and Malcolm Gladwell’s books because they often cite research that provides new or unique insights. And there are several books on the topic of Servant Leadership by Autry, Blanchard and Greenleaf (the founder of the philosophy) which are very inspiring and applicable for entrepreneurs.”- Sue Grinius-Hill;Technology Strategic Planning/Product Design & Development

“I think the two best books ever are Getting To Yes and Good to Great.”-

Alvin Loh;Founder at Jobvention

“One that’s really resonated with me in the past few years is The Art of War by Sun Tzu.  In order to break barriers and lead people to try new things, one must be fearless and unafraid to jump over obstacles that have stopped others in the past.  I strive every day to excel as a manager, and the mentality and strategy in this book are tantamount to anyone aiming to lead the way in whatever area they find passion in this world.”- Jody Laflen; Bellevue College Dean of the Institute for Business and Information Technology
