“Leadership is not something you do to people. It’s something you do with people.”
~Ken Blanchard , Patricia Zigarmi, and Drea Zigarmi
The very best leaders are learners – people who are always interested in ways to enhance their own knowledge and skills. So, whether you are a new leader or have been in your leadership role for 30 years, you will benefit from this book on leadership from the best person I know to teach these valuable leadership lessons from the heart- Ken Blanchard.
Ken Blanchard calls himself, “chief spiritual officer” of his consulting company. That right there says a lot about Ken’s leadership style. I could have searched the world over, and not found a better person to write a book titled The Heart of a Leader.
Ken believes leadership should not be done purely for personal gain or goal accomplishment; it should fulfill a much higher purpose. Nothing is wrong with accomplishing goals, but when you focus solely on results, you miss the big picture. As a result, things like morale and job satisfaction will tend to fall by the wayside.
Leading at a higher level is the process of achieving worthwhile results while acting with respect, care, and fairness for the well-being of all invlolved. It’s only when you realize it’s not all about you that you begin to lead at a higher level. -an excerpt from The Heart of a Leader.
This book makes a great gift for new managers and seasoned managers to set the tone for how you envision the leaders of your company.

“I didn’t get here by dreaming about it or thinking about it — I got here by doing it.”
You’ve heard of the Power of Positive Thinking. There’s no doubt about it…the human mind is an amazingly powerful computer, capable of transforming our lives.
But achieving what you want in life isn’t accomplished by sitting in your comfy chair and visualizing all day long. Far too many people neglect to ACT on their own behalf in order to bring their dreams to life. As cosmetics company founder and CEO Estee Lauder put it so well, “I didn’t get here by dreaming about it or thinking about it — I got here by doing it.”
Author BJ Gallagher has captured the “secret” no one is talking about — you can actually change your thoughts and attitudes by taking positive ACTION, no matter what you’re thinking or feeling! She calls it the “The Power of Positive DOING” —the title of her latest book.
BJ is no stranger to Simple Truths’ readers. The author of more than 20 books, including Friends, Oil for Your Lamp, and The Best Way Out is Through, her engaging stories and original poetry have put her on our best-seller list.

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Henry David Thoreau
After 50 years of teaching success, Nightingale Learning Systems has gathered together the common bonds and shared values of those individuals who occupy the rarest positions in their industries—the top 2 percent.
With The Top 2%, our intention is to provide the latest research on what it takes to reach the top in the 21st Century—the road map for the next generation of achievers–starting with you.
The fact is, the top 2 percent set the trends in every industry. They set the trends by imagining and dreaming things that didn’t exist and then doing what it took to make it happen. Whether you’re in business, entertainment, sports, politics or some other industry, if you’re in the top 2 percent, you have the power and influence to make things happen.
Find your overarching sense of purpose and focus on it, you’ll find yourself with a drive and a passion you never felt before! As Dostoyevsky put it, “The secret of a man’s being is not only to live, but to have something to live for.”
Find out what you’re living for, and you’ll be on your way to the STARS.

The Touch of the Master’s Hand reinforces Myra Brooks Welch’s powerful and inspiring poem that helps us better understand and realize that God places far more value on restoring our soul and renewing our faith than putting a price on the external value of a person’s life. This book also reveals an inspiring message that reminds us of our uniqueness and significance with God. Author Bob Kelly, a very accomplished writer and author of several books, does a masterful job of researching and reinforcing the importance of the story and poem and just how applicable it is to our lives today.
“The Touch of the Master’s Hand is an incredible and compelling book. It’s sure to penetrate your very heart and soul while lifting your spirit in the process. I can’t think of a better and more beautiful gift to encourage and inspire, both young and old, as they face the ongoing challenges of life.”
