Two Books To Check Out

One of the perks of booking for a radio talk show are all the authors hawking books. It offers plenty of access to books--lots of them free--for avid readers. I used to get a lot more books when I worked the talk shows with long segments for interviews. Booking for the morning news show is a lot trickier, since the interview blocks are only 4 minutes under best conditions. But I do get to sneak in a lot of business related books and authors who can talk about relevant business topic while hawking their books.

Two authors we featured on the show recently were Bill Diffenderffer, author of "The Samurai Leader," and Katherine Graham Leviss, who wrote the book "High-Maintenance Employees."

"The Samurai Leader" is a book that would easily catch the interest of those business leaders who read translation of Sun Tzu or Machiavelli and adapt those principles to today's business situations. My host Meg was flying solo the morning she interviewed Bill Diffenderffer and you can listen to the interview here (.mp3 format).

"High-Maintenance Employees" gives you the tools and hopefully the courage to deal with those high-performance employees that tend to need special care and feeding. Kathi Graham Leviss join Neal & Meg on the show this morning, with our focus on managing what we're calling milleniuals--those twenty-somethings who intelligence and competence can possibly make them toxic to an organization, and you can hear it here (.mp3 format).
