Jack Covert Selects: This Week - 3/21/05

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:39 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Good Morning.

Let me start this morning by saying it is pretty exciting to see two of our teams making it to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Wisconsin beat Bucknell yesterday and UW-Milwaukee (a 12 seed) is living a Cindrella story beating both Alabama (5 seed) and Boston College (4 seed). Both have tough games in the next round. Good Luck!

At 8cr this week, we are going to be overwhelming you will Dan Pink and his new book A Whole New World. We saw it back in December and immediately fell in love with it. We will be running reader reviews. I did any audio interview with Dan. We have a Jack Covert Selects on the book. We will also be running excerpts from the book. We are hoping that it will be impossible for you not to check this book out.

I will be posting a audio excerpt from Rick Pitino's Success Is A Choice. I thought that would go well with the NCAA tournament.

I also have a pile of books to look through today, so who knows what else we will be talking about before the week is out.

Have a great week!
