May 16, 2011, Las Vegas, NVThe Refractive Thinker®, Volume IV: Ethics, Leadership and Globalization has been named a finalist in the Anthology category of the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. This recognition marks the second honor for the peer-reviewed publication series from this organization. Previously the book garnered the Axiom Business Book Awards 2011 Bronze Medal winner.

“The goal of the Refractive Thinker® is to search those who stretch their thinking beyond the proverbial box, beyond boundaries, and beyond limits of conventional wisdom” explains Dr. Cheryl Lentz, managing editor, The Lentz Leadership Institute.  “Our purpose is to ask and ponder the right questions, to dare to think differently, to find new applications within unique and cutting edge dimensions, ultimately to lead where others may follow or to risk forging perhaps a new path entirely.”

The Refractive Thinker ®, Volume IV: Ethics, Leadership and Globalization “highlights the accomplishments of these doctoral scholars affiliated with many phenomenal institutions of higher learning” says Lentz. “This work shares yet another glimpse into the scholarly works of accomplished educator/ authors. Specifically, Volume IV examines the topics of ethics, leadership, and concerns within the global landscape of business.”
