I just received word that Otherwise Engaged did make the cut—from the Top 20 to the Top 5—in the selection process for 2015’s “Leadership Book of the Year” as chosen by L&MB (Leadership & Management Books).   It’s now in the hands of an expert panel that will review the five finalists and choose the #1 book.  Their selection will be announced on March 15th.

If you voted for my book, thank you!  If you persuaded others to also cast a vote in my favor, thank you again!  Even if you did neither, thank you just the same for putting up with my shameless solicitations over the past couple of weeks.  (And if you didn’t vote for me but persuaded others to do so, then: a) thanks, I guess; and b) I’d be interested in hearing the thinking behind such an idiosyncratic course of action.)
