Synchronicity: The Inner Path of Leadership by Joseph Jaworski




"Synchronicity illustrates that leadership is about the release of human possibilities, about enabling others to break free of limits-created organizationally or self-imposed. Although this book describes the author's personal journey, it contains profound messages about organizational learning and effectiveness." This book was sparked by the discussions attorney Joe Jaworski had with his father, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski, about the lack of moral and ethical standards at high levels. The author maintains that true leadership creates a domain in which people become ever more capable and "predictable miracles" can happen.

Goss's unique methodology shows how "you can put at risk the success you have achieved for the 'possibility' you can be."

The Way of the Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire by David Deida




With uncommon honesty and unparalleled insight into the deepest desires of the masculine heart, David Deida explores the most challenging and important issues in men's lives. Covering everything from work and career, to dealing with sex, women, and love, to finding purpose in an increasingly superficial and mechanical world, this book reveals how a man can live a life of fulfillment without compromise by relaxing into the truth of his very being, discovering his deepest vision, and giving his gifts without holding anything back.




Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez & Vicki Robin




Your Money or Your Life hit the market just as the workers of America were discovering the void in the center of their post-'80s consumer-driven values. The book's premise is based on life force: we drain it in order to earn more so that we can consume more. The nine-step process shows how to frame personal finances in a whole new context. For example, every purchase can be measured on a scale of life force: when grocery shopping, consider how much of your life force it took to earn the money for a gourmet brand of jam. Will the pleasure it brings match or exceed that life force? If not, put it back on the shelf. Other steps are as fundamental as wise investing and how to downscale spending while maintaining a sense of abundance.
