Sometimes the world feels like it's falling apart.  This is certainly how it would feel if you ran a company during the 2008 financial crisis.  How would a successful CEO turn their company and their brand around?  And what can we learn from this story that will help us in our own lives?

We look at Onward by Howard Schultz, the story of his return as CEO of Starbucks in order to save the company.  He teaches us about loving what we do, holding fast to our core values, and how to bring people along with us.

But one book is never enough!  Reading different books gives us fresh perspectives, and we can learn new things by combining these books together. I share takeaways from two more books from successful CEOs, and what we can learn when these three perspectives meet in the middle.
