It’s been a tremendous launch week for Mark Miller, author of The Heart of Leadership. Here at Weaving Influence, we never get tired of seeing the buzz that is built by our outstanding community of supporters. By late Thursday afternoon, there were over 70 Amazon reviews, 66 of which were 5-stars! You can also find The Heart of Leadership on Goodreads, so if you’ve read the book, or are planning to read it, remember to leave a review this weekend.
As people have shared their thoughts about Mark’s new book, our team has stayed busy collecting links to share with you, and today we’re highlighting a few of them. We are humbled by the number of people who request copies of the books we are launching, and then actually spend time reading them and writing thoughtful reviews on blogs and online book sites. We cannot say it too often: we couldn’t do this without you – THANKS!
