Comments from Advance Reviews:

“Leadership Caffeine is essential for every professional. Art boils down his personal and professional experience to capture the intangibles that PMBOK or any process will not tell you in your effort to succeed as a project manager. I firmly believe it does not stop there. Art’s Leadership Caffeine delivers clear, concise, experience based tools and techniques to help build and lead high-performance teams at all levels. For all professionals, not just project managers, this book contains countless valuable strategies for success.”
