Some Interesting Sites With Info About Leadership, Organizational Dynamics and Behavior

So, what in life is really, truly, completely new? Very little. Even the Beatles weren’t terribly bashful about copying others (themselves included). While I have no delusions that even begin to go as far as comparing myself to the Beatles, over the years, I’ve found that many of the following people and organizations published some very interesting ideas that have come in handy as I’ve learned the ropes of management. All of these sites are well worth a look!
