News & Opinion: Bill Welter/Prepared Mind of a Leader Interview

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:50 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

If you follow any of our websites, you will have seen us heavily promoting The Prepared Mind of the Leader. I fell in love with this book back in January. We have featured it twice on inBubbleWrap. Bill and Jean wrote a series of posts about the eight skills on the 8cr weblog (this post has links to all of them).

Yesterday, we have a teleconference and invited everyone who had bought and won the book over the past four months. The call lasted a little over 30 minutes and provides the back story for how the book came about, Bill's perspective on leadership, and discussion of some of the skills from the book.

This was a great way to end The Prepared Mind of a Leader World Tour.
