One of the awesomest things about working for Wired is that we get all of the business and management self-help books before they hit market. Usedta be that my favorite was Power Plays: Shakespeare’s Lessons in Leadership and Management

But that was before I discovered The Leadership Secrets of Santa Claus. How To Get Big Things Done In YOUR “Workshop” All Year Long! I won’t give away the ending, but here’s the table of contents [or rather, the “Sack-Full of Contents”]:

1. Build a Wonderful Workshop
2. Choose Your Reindeer Wisely
3. Make a List and Check It Twice
4. Listen to the Elves
5. Get Beyond the Red Wagons
6. Share the Milk and Cookies
7. Find Out Who’s Naughty and Nice
8. Be Good For Goodness Sake
Closing Thoughts
Summary Checklist
Your Commitment Letter (To Santa Claus)
