If I could read only one magazine it would be the Economist.  If I could read only one author on leadership it would be James O’Toole.  I became a follower in the mid-1990’s when I read Leading Change.  He is a scholar of morality and ethics,  He is also grounded in reality.

He did a nice piece on speaking truth to power in Transparency: How Leaders Create a Culture of Candor.  He speaks from experience.

He writes for Strategy + Business.  Recently he did an introduction to a review of Warren Bennis’s latest, “Still Surprised: A memoir of a life in leadership.”  If the playoffs are getting you down, look into it.
