Yesterday, Tuesday, September 7, 2010, the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and The Washington Post’s On Leadership site jointly produce the Federal Coach, hosted by Tom Fox, director of the partnership’s Center for Government Leadership, as the question of “U.S. gopvernment officials, “what’s your favorite book on leadership?”
Among those who they asked was Aaron Williams, the Peace Corps Director. Aaron replied: “Nelson Mandela’s autobiography Long Walk to Freedom is an outstanding book, because it’s one of these unique situations where someone who’s in prison for a long time comes out with a positive view of what needs to be done in that society. He has a plan of action to carry it out and doesn’t allow the past to be baggage that impedes his way to progress in the future.”
Now! After being Peace Corps Director what will Aaron’s favorite Peace Corps book be?
Give me your suggestions….
