At Mojo For Leaders we are always learning and get giddy with excitement when we find an interesting new source of material, or a new study, a great book or simply an inspiring quote. The pleasure we get out of coming across an interesting gem that has stretched our knowledge more, or has gotten us to look at familiar contexts with new eyes, is doubled when we get to share it with others. Here we are creating a repository of all of our favourite sources of knowledge and inspiration for you to dip into and enjoy. If you have any gems you would like to share with us, let us know on info@mojoforleaders.com. We would love to hear from you.
