Intentional Leadership Podcasts

The late Dr. Warren Bennis

I am honored to have had Dr. Warren Bennis join me as a guest on Intentional Leadership. Instead of his usual focus on the art of leadership, I asked him about his own development as a leader, who his mentors were, how his philosophy evolved. Be sure to check out his book, “The ESSENCE of Bennis.”

Jack Shakely

Jack Shakely is president emeritus of the California Community Foundation in Los Angeles. His essays and opinion pieces have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Denver Post and many other newspapers.

His two novels, “The Confederate War Bonnet,” and “POWs at Chigger Lake,” are both set in Oklahoma, Shakely’s home state. “The Confederate War Bonnett” won the gold medal as best historical/military fiction and best mid-western fiction in the 2009 Independent Publishers Awards…Shakely is of Muscogee/Creek descent and was chair of the Los Angeles Native American Indian Commission from 1992 to 1996.

Jack’s third book, Che Guevara’s Marijuana & Baseball Savings & Loan: A Novel of the Early Days of the Peace Corps, may be the best yet–but it’s very hard to choose. Brilliant and witty writing combined with exceptional research give the reader a rare glimpse into the early days of the peace corps.

As one Amazon reviewer wrote: “A rollicking good story vividly told by a masterful raconteur. Captures the look and feel of the Peace Corps experience, the places (Oklahoma and Costa Rica)and the sixties in a story only slightly more colorful than life was at the time. Would not have picked up this book if I had not been a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica II, but I would have missed a great evocation of the adventure. Try it, you’ll like it.

Jack was a highly regarded philanthropy leader in the country. And when he retired, he created a second career as a writer and is equally successful. Don’t miss this interview with author Jack Shakely to learn who he is and how he got there.
