A name you will frequently see on lists of top bloggers is the Montreal-based leadership coach, speaker and writer Tanveer Naseer; principal and founder of Tanveer Naseer Leadership.

When Peter Drucker began visiting Japan in the 1950s, I imagine he had to prepare and arrange his schedule by exchanging letters and possibly some expensive phone calls.

As the year winds down, some useful best-of-business-book posts have been published recently, particularly Todd Sattersten’s The Top 10 Business Books of 2010. I saw Todd do terrific presentations at the 2009 and 2010 BK authors marketing workshops, and last year he was the first person to review Living in More Than One World, when he was with 800ceoread.

Another author on the list, Steven Johnson, was interviewed recently on the 800ceoread blog.…Read More
