Simple Truths philosophy: There is one thing in life that took me a long time to learn, and that’s… less is almost always more. This “simple truth” is the foundation on which our company was built. I wanted to create beautiful gift books that anyone can read in less than thirty minutes.

To make each book special, we focused on three things: Great content, Great graphics, Great packaging to create a “wow effect”

We also chose not to offer our books in any bookstores or any retail outlets, to make it even more special as a gift.

Satisfied customers are our #1 priority, so I encourage you to give us feedback on how we’re doing. If we ever disappoint you, I hope you’ll let us know, and we will do everything we can to make it right.

The Heart of a Leader

Author(s): Ken Blanchard

“Leadership is not something you do to people. It’s something you do with people.”...MORE INFORMATION »

“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.”
Estee Lauder

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.
