“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.

Every day you have the opportunity to touch those around you with kindness. This book will inspire you to remember the power of kindness and weave it into your daily routine...MORE INFORMATION »
Pass It On! Kindness is like a snowball that’s rolling down a hill. Each unselfish act or word is another snowflake that greets the others. . .creating something much larger than itself in the process.
I once heard someone say, “If you teach your children the Golden Rule, you will have left them an incalculable estate.” Truer words were never spoken. More than anything, the Golden Rule is about kindness. Kindness and honesty make you feel good about yourself and create trust in others. They improve your relationship with yourself and with others. It’s not much in fashion these days to talk about the benefits of kindness, honesty and decency, but the benefits are there and they are valuable and worth the trouble.
In fact studies have shown committing acts of kindness is actually good for your health. A rush of euphoria, followed by a longer period of calm after performing a kind act, is often referred to as a “helper’s high,” involving physical sensations and the release of the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins. This initial rush is then followed by a longer-lasting period of improved emotional well-being.
Just reading stories of other’s acts of kindness will bring you joy and it is a wonderful message to share with friends or volunteers who have shown you kindness. Spread some kindness today…because nice matters!

“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.
