I'd like to throw out a big thanks to Alex for stepping in at the last 
minute prior to Thursday evening's meeting and presenting another 
(typically) compelling talk.  I found myself repeatedly nodding in 
agreement as so many of his observations jibed with my experiences on 
both sides of the management/leadership fence.  And his talk contains a 
boatload of references to books worth reading even if you won't agree 
with all of the authors' conclusions.

I hope Alex won't mind if I mention the URL for the presentation:


If you are at all interested in the topic, it's a very worthwhile read.
