People have debated for many years about the single most important characteristic or “ingredient” for leadership. The same endless debate might take place if we were to ask what the single, most important factor for chocolate cake is. Clearly, there is an argument for chocolate. There is also a good argument for eggs, flour, sugar, water and an assortment of other factors, including oven temperature and time in the oven. In fact, if any essential ingredient is missing or out of balance, the cake is vulnerable. It isn’t everything it could be.

Effective, passionate leadership requires many things. In this book, we cover ten essentials. Combine these key factors and you have a means to inspire and lead with passion.

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.
