On The Books: Keys to Leadership
In this month’s picks, we learn that good business practice comes from being adaptable, well versed, and knowing what to hold onto.

Left Brain, Right Stuff: How Leaders Make Winning Decisions
Leaders stand out in all facets of life, sometimes naturally and sometimes through hard work. Author Phil Rosenzweig examines using real-world wisdom in order to stand out as a decision maker and successful individual. (PublicAffairs, January 2014, $28.99)
Love ’Em or Lose ’Em: Getting Good People to Stay
In most businesses, employees come and go, some good, some bad, some great, some awful.

Office Supplies: Feeling Secure
In our on-the-go society, it’s more important than ever to feel secure when it comes to your documents, whether they’re hard copies or digital. Luckily, this month’s picks are guaranteed to make you feel safe in the 21st-century workplace.
Have a server room that needs extra protection, or maybe a document archive room? This fingerprint door lock by iTouchless (pictured) can grant access for up to 150 different users, or 78 different passcodes. Plus, there’s always a failsafe—two backup keys. iTouchless.com, $319.95
Filing cabinets used to be so humdrum, but not anymore thanks to modern designs that seamlessly blend office storage into the work setting, like this espresso-stained, locking lateral file drawer by BDI. 2Modern.com, $1,099
Jump drives are ideal for being small and portable, but what if you accidentally leave it behind at a meeting or misplace it somewhere? With the LOK-IT Secure Flash Drive, you can store anywhere from 4 to 32GB of encrypted information, and only you have the key (or code) to unlock it. LOCK-IT.net, $62-$179
