"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

What I found most unique and helpful was what seems to be the core tool within this book, the "coaches clipboard". In the "coaches clipboard", I found myself appreciating that entire read, and was drawn particularly to #9. Thinking before you act seems simple and is such a vital aspect of leadership, but how often do we as leaders really "think before we act" and think of the implications of our decisions or actions on those around us.
This was well worth the read.
This book is particularly useful at this moment in history, when so many are under such stress. Not only does the author describe sound principles for improving leadership skills, he provides 52 specific "playbook" discussions (1 per week, enough for one year) that will show you how to help yourself become a better leader.
I've personally worked through many of the exercises Rob proposes, and, although I've been teaching an intensive leadership seminar for the Society of Automotive Engineering for several years, I learned a great deal doing this.
Open it at random and let Coach Pasick's advice guide you serendipitously. Or, take a more planned approach and use the tool, Your Personal Playbook, to set specific goals for developing your leadership skills.
No matter how you use it, you'll count "Balanced Leadership" among the most powerful resources for self-coaching you've ever encountered.
