With a Foreword by Howard T. Prince II, Director of the Center for Ethical Leadership, University of Texas at Austin.
This book shares the leadership insights of a man who rose from reluctant draftee to decorated Army colonel, helped build the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and now works to develop IBM's most senior leaders. Using concise, anecdotal chapters, Jack Beach reveals what it takes to be a superior leader. He asserts that the primary task of leaders, especially those in senior positions, is creation of organizational climates characterized by 360 degrees of trust and deep engagement. In service of this principle, he explains the importance of intrinsic motivation, explores the concept of principle-based leadership, introduces tools such as The 5 Trust Vital Signs, and promotes the idea of collective leadership.
Ultimately, leadership is not some set of accumulated skills but about human development and personal reflection--about understanding ourselves and those around us.
If you aspire to become a leader, want to improve your leadership skills, or simply enjoy good stories, this book is for you. Its reflections and observations will change your view forever.
