A Baker’s Dozen of Great Insights From 2015

blue-sky-2015Last week, I identified half a dozen books from 2015 that you simply have to read and share. So I figured it’d be a great idea to do the same thing with ExecuNet insights from this past year. There are so many interviews, master classes and articles I want to make sure you’ve seen that getting the list down to half a dozen wasn’t feasible.
