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. His work has been featured by major organizations and in a number of publications, including The Globe and Mail (the Toronto-based national newspaper of Canada), Fast Company and elsewhere.
He writes about many different topics on his blog, not surprising given his wide interests and scientific background. I asked him about those and other aspects of his life in the following Q&A:
1. With your work, family obligations, blogging and related writing, you are obviously a busy and productive person.…Read More
William A. Cohen, one of the most astute writers on the work of Peter Drucker, has released his third Drucker-related book in the past five years: Drucker on Marketing: Lessons from the World’s Most Influential Business Thinker.

In 2010, he and Scott Scherer contributed a chapter, Knowledge Worker Productivity and the Practice of Self-Management, to the book The Drucker Difference.…Read More
The most valuable books for personal transformation are often short, practical and to-the-point. That is an apt description of Laura Goodrich’s just-released Seeing Red Cars: Driving Yourself, Your Team, and Your Organization to a Positive Future. Laura is the co-owner of On Impact Productions; and also a consultant, radio/TV/film host and a fellow Berrett-Koehler author. You can read a free excerpt from her book and see her new promotional video at her page on the B-K website. I met Laura last June at the B-K Authors Cooperative Marketing Workshop. I wasn’t surprised that her book is full of solid, actionable advice, because in one of the exercises during the workshop, we were in the same “co-consulting” group to briefly discuss areas in our professional lives that we wanted to work on.…Read More
