Periodically, I come across a short book with a simple message that gets its point across quickly and compellingly. For more years than I can count, I’ve been listening to How to Become a CEO by Jeffrey Fox at least once every year. Jeffrey’s book includes about a dozen recommendations for anyone seeking the top spot in a company. However, the advice applies to nonprofits, the military, and any other organization.
