The Society for Information Management (SIM) Regional Leadership Forum (RLF) is an intensive ten-month leadership development program. Since 1992, over 3000 graduates and more than 300 employer sponsors have participated. According to their web site, “RLF uses an experiential learning environment introducing participants to new concepts while enhancing interpersonal skills and creating a sense of mission. The RLF curriculum offers participants an open exchange on leadership approaches and practices. The RLF sessions are dedicated to the interactive learning environment to develop participants’ leadership, team-building, creative thinking, listening skills, global business skills, and knowledge of business ethics.”
SIM recently published their reading list for 2001. I’ve gone a step further, and created links to each title on Amazon, on a new Category page in the IT Project Manager Book Store. Just click on the “IT Project Manager Book Store” link under “Resources” on the right of this page. Then click on “SIM Book List” under “Browse by Category” at the upper right. Or just click here. I plan to read at least some of these books over the coming months, and will post reviews of any books I do read. If you read one of them and want to post a review, let me know.
