BOOK OF THE WEEK

I believe this book first came out in 1982. I bought and read it in 1993 and I still have it today and over the years I look it over every so often. I just learned of Franco Columbu’s death and so I thought I would make his book my Book of the Week.

Franco Columbu’s Complete Book of Bodybuilding

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

This is one of my favorite movies, it is funny and provides a lot of lessons in leadership. I had the students in one of the college classes I taught, do their term paper on all the leadership principles they observed in this film.

  1. I really love that you assigned Back to School as a leadership example for your students. I’m currently exploring what Authentic Leadership means for me, and what you offered is a new perspective for me. Thank you!

    And, thank you for liking my latest Forgiving Fridays post. It will be my last one for a while, as I’m taking an extended blogging break. Email me if you like: weloveyou@forgivingconnects.com.

    All the best to you,
    Debbie

    • Thank you Debbie. There is an amazing amount of management techniques demonstrated in the movie. Each semester I gave the class a choice of five movies to vote on which one would be the term project. But, Back to School was my favorite.
