“Leading Transformation and Captivating Communities”

Digital analyst, sociologist, and futurist, Brian Solis discusses how social, mobile, real-time, and all other emerging trends are affecting your industries, communities, or markets and how these new tools can bring people together and unite them under a common front or concerted mission.
"It All Starts With ASense of Urgency”
by John Kotter
Best-selling author of books such as Leading Change, A Sense of Urgency and Buy-In John Kotter suggests that a true sense of urgency is becoming immeasurably important and that real urgency is an essential asset that must be -- and can be -- created and re-created.
These eBooks have been produced as “manifestos” defined as "a short, actionable book that is given away to spread ideas and help connect with like-minded people." Some of them are newer and some are older (e.g., the Mark Cuban manifesto was written about 8 years ago when he was on the TV show “The Benefactor”) but the information is still sound and applicable to business today.
