product description

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 thirty years, you will benefit from The Heart of a Leader, written by one of the most qualified people to teach 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. When Simple Truths wanted to publish an outstanding book on leadership, we could have searched the world over and not found a better person to write 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. Consequently, 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 involved. It’s only when you realize it’s not all about you that you begin to lead at a higher level.

This book makes a great gift for both new and seasoned managers, to set help set the tone for how you envision the leaders of your company.

          Meaty Book
          There's a lot to this book; it's jam-packed with quotes and uses every page to the max. I'd say a majority of the book has Ken Blanchard's writings, but sprinkled throughout are other thoughtful writers to inspire you.
