Details: Product description THE WINNER OF MULTIPLE AWARDS and a #1 INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER, this book vividly brings to life 50 years of leadership and life lessons, told in a compelling and sometimes very personal way. A master storyteller, the author does this in 24 easily digestible chapters, starting with "character," the basic building block for all great leaders. From there, he addresses the importance of trust, four different methods of mentoring, delivering under pressure, setting organizational expectations, breaking down cultural barriers, effective communications, leaving a legacy, risk management, and many more topics that have everyday application for all of us. Widely acclaimed by dozens of corporate leaders and senior military leaders, he has the unique ability to connect to readers through storytelling and takeaways that anyone can then apply: in the corporate world, the non-profit community, or simply in your everyday life. Two bonus appendices are included that are tools he personally used as a senior leader in the military: his "Philosophy of Command" -- time tested over 30 years -- and a self-reflection on himself as a leader titled "Whelden on Whelden." You will not be disappointed!

Inouye, former U.S. Senator and Medal of Honor recipient "Time spent with this book will be time well spent."-- ADMIRAL Tim Keating, U.S. Navy (retired) "This book will become a ready reference for leadership challenges throughout your life." -- Lieutenant General Terry "Guts" Robling, USMC (retired) "The three people I most enjoy listening to and learning from: Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, and Craig Whelden." -- Roger Cross, Birmingham, England From Kirkus Reviews “Overall, Whelden’s life story is as inspiring as his counsel is instructive. A straightforward and forthcoming guide to leadership that stands apart from others in its field”
