MAGUS Founder Holly Williams shares monthly what's new and interesting in leadership and elsewhere in the world…



November 2014

I really enjoyed The Discomfort Zone by Marcia Hughes, a quick read on having tough conversations.  Marcia does a great job providing "coach" advice for leaders who need to speak up about issues that cause discomfort.  See my review on Amazon here.  

It's hard to forget the nonfiction book, The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace, written by Peace's Yale college roommate.  This is an extraordinary story about an extraordinary boy who comes of age in East Orange and never can seem to break away from that lifestyle.  See my Amazon review here.  

Finally, for Bill Murray fans, I loved St. Vincent, a new movie where he plays an aging Vietnam vet who ends up babysitting for Melissa McCarthy's son.  You will laugh out loud.  And if you stay through the closing credits, you will be further mesmerized.
