There is this guy, Jon Gordon, I just love! I see him as a mentor. If you are not familiar with his work, I promise it is worth your time. His style of writing takes boring, repeated bulleted leadership principles and turns them into AMAZING stories. I highly recommend him. My favorite book is Training Camp, a story about an NFL rookie who is forced to face his fears on his path to greatness. Along the way, he learns a valuable lesson from a coach who sees a potential in the rookie to be great.
