    Highly Recommended

    The book Collaborative Leadership and Global Transformation does an excellent job of providing an in-depth understanding of how synergy and Collaborative Leadership change individuals and organizations. It is an interesting and informative study of groups and organizations using examples from everyday life and literature to provide the reader with the knowledge of how they can raise their level of performance in any group or organization and help change world in the process. I highly recommend this book that has been used as recommended or required reading in such schools as NYU and Regent University.
