This edition of “What I’m Reading” is all about leadership: managing others, managing yourself, and fearlessly seeking what is right. Enjoy.


“Think you’re emotionally intelligent because you’re nice? Think again.”

“A $2.5 trillion asset manager just put a statute of a defiant girl in front of the Wall Street bull”

Girl power rocks! Full stop and bravo to State Street for giving us an image of what women can do during a "bull" or "bear" market.
