Survive to Thrive – 27 Practices of Resilient Entrepreneurs, Innovators, And Leaders (Motivational Press)

Although many ideas never make it off the page and most new ventures fail, we tend to hear about people when they are successful, not when they are struggling.


Resilience is the universal human capacity to face, overcome, and even be strengthened by experiences of adversity. The book is divided into three sections, each of which are key concepts in the development of one’s own ability to bend, and not break, in the face of a personal or professional setback.


The individual stories examine the essential tools needed to overcome obstacles and seize upon an opportunity.
They incorporate practical applications for reframing your reaction to setbacks.
They help guide you through a process that can redefine fear as a simple signal that something isn’t working.


This book offers powerful approaches to diffuse strong emotion in the moment of crisis, and opens up opportunities for re-examining your personal definition of success. The book illuminates how anyone can attain the resilience that’s required to repeatedly push forward in the face of conflict.

The Power of Convergence – Linking Business Strategies and Technology Decisions to Create Sustainable Success (American Management Association)

The Power of Convergence makes the case–and lays the groundwork–for a new understanding of the role of technology in business. No technology should be developed or deployed without a full vision of how it advances business goals, addresses customer needs, or both.

Beyond that, technology should be so tightly intertwined with strategy that the two drive each other, with each at the ready when market opportunity materializes–however suddenly.


“At some point, every business leader will struggle with the management topics outlined in The Power of Convergence. How they think about these issues, more importantly, how they make the right decisions regarding them is critical to the success of their organization.” – Dr. Krishna Palepu, Ross Graham Walker Professor of Business Administration, Senior Associate Dean for International Development, Harvard Business School
