A Best-Selling Author’s Leadership Advice

Leadership is one of the most popular topics with subscribers to Soundview Executive Book Summaries. We do our best to fulfill subscriber requests for the latest in leadership materials, whether it’s through book summaries, collections, or exclusive webinars with top authors. However, there’s one leadership resource about which you may not be aware.

Have you signed up for Soundview’s Leadership Alert? This FREE e-newsletter provides exclusive insight into leadership issues. It often features interviews with authors whose names top the best-seller lists of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Here’s a link to a recent issue of Leadership Alert that includes a special interview with best-selling author Daniel Pink. He’s the author of A Whole New Mind and Free Agent Nation.

In the above issue of Leadership Alert, he discusses his new book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us and the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. I definitely found myself considering whether I was a Type I or Type X personality. Take a look at Pink’s descriptions of the two personality types. Do you see yourself as one or the other? Drop us a comment and let us know what you think.

In the meantime, visit our Website at and sign up for our FREE e-newsletter Soundview’s Leadership Alert. Also, if you like the interview with Daniel Pink, you might want to join us for our next edition of Soundview Live. Daniel Pink will be our special guest! It’s July 8, 2010 at Noon (eastern) and is FREE for subscribers.
