Backed by over 30 years of original research and data from over four million individuals, this book offers a framework for leadership development in the modern business environment, and a set of best practices for training the leaders of tomorrow.

Tristan Holt is nothing if not pragmatic. Despite a flourishing career as a defenseman for the Atlanta Venom, Tristan knows he can't play hockey forever. One day he'll retire--if an injury doesn't force him to hang up his skates first. His backup plan? Finishing his business degree. But he doesn't count on a very inappropriate attraction to his standoffish sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz. Sebastian is on the bottom rung of the Sociology Department at Georgia State. He has his sights set on tenure, and he can't afford to be distracted, especially not by a sexy student with a body straight out of Sebastian's dreams. No matter how much Tristan tempts him, that's one line Sebastian won't cross. At least not until summer classes end. After that, everything is fair game. But Sebastian lives loud and proud, and Tristan is terrified of being the first out player in the NHL. Neither of them can afford to risk their hearts when they can't imagine a happily ever after. The problem is, unlike hockey, when it comes to love, there are no rules.

In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of four tools that bring about dynamic change in the present and impart a greater understanding of the depth and complexity of the human condition over the longterm. The Tools addresses the most common complaint patients have about psychotherapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. Barry Michels, an LA-based therapist, was frustrated by his inability to bring his patients faster relief from the issues that plagued them. He found a mentor in Phil Stutz, a psychiatrist who years before devised a methodology that arose from a similar disenchantment. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Stutz and Michels employ an arsenal of tools--exercises that access the power of the unconscious and effectively meet the most persistent problems people face--and the results are electrifying. Stutz and Michels are much sought-after--a recent profile in The New Yorker touted them as an "open secret" in Hollywood--and treat a high-powered and creative clientele. Their first work, The Tools transcends the typical self-help genre because of its paradigm-changing material, the credibility of its authors, and the instant appeal and empowerment of its message.

At twenty-three, Poe Montgomery is going nowhere. He still lives in his father's basement and spends most of his time tagging with his friends. When an arrest lands him in debt, Poe accepts the front desk job at Permanent Ink, the tattoo shop owned by his father's best friend, Jericho McAslan. Jericho is nearly twice Poe's age, but with his ink and prematurely graying hair, he quickly takes the starring role in Poe's hottest fantasies. Jericho is known for his ability to transform poorly designed tattoos into works of art, but he was once as aimless and misdirected as Poe. Wanting to pay it forward the way someone once did for him, Jericho makes Poe his apprentice and is determined to keep things strictly professional. Easier said than done when Poe makes his interest--and his daddy kink--abundantly clear. Jericho can't resist Poe or their intense chemistry for long. But between the age gap, tension with Poe's father, and Poe's best friend calling him a sellout, they'll need to ensure they're both on the same page before they can rewrite their rocky start into something permanent.
