Joel Osteen is the Senior Pastor of Houston’s Lakewood Church, the largest church in the U.S.  He’s immediately recognizable from his television ministry, bestselling books and stadium appearances.

Pastor Osteen has a consistent message of encouragement and hope.  That inspirational message resonates with the members of his home church and also with the millions who tune in to his weekly broadcast.

Discussing Escape Velocity with Geoffrey Moore

One of the most thoughtful voices on transformative challenges and disruptive change is Geoffrey Moore.  His books are must-reading in business schools, but are applicable to anyone seeking significant growth or change.  I’ve spoken on the topic of personal and industry change at various conferences.  After one of my speeches, someone connected me to Geoff.  I enjoyed meeting him since all of his books are in my private library at home:  Crossing the Chasm, Inside the Tornado, The Gorilla Game, Living on the Fault Line, and Dealing with Darwin.

A Conversation with Condoleezza Rice

Extraordinary, Ordinary

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has written two memoirs of her life.  Read Extraordinary, Ordinary People and you will feel like you really know her personally.  She writes about her parents’ unconditional love and the values that helped her grow into a polished diplomat.  Read her latest memoir, No Higher Honor, about her time serving in the Bush administration and you will follow her experiences from National Security Advisor to Secretary of State in the aftermath of 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond.
