    "The Myth of Employee Burnout" explores how every facet of the ‘employee life cycle’ (from recruiting to termination) can play a role in determining if an employee will continue working at a high level or not.

    The Myth Of The “Great Leader”. I have been spending a lot of time thinking about this subject lately. So much so a book may be coming out of it. Regular visitors to this site know I read a lot of leadership books. The individuals profiled represent a wide range of value .   Leaders: Myth and Reality opens with a critique of previous accounts of leadership, and the book follows up with a not uninteresting claim that leadership isn't really to be judged by leaders.
