product description

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” ~ Galileo Galilei

Picture a huge pile of rocks and gravel, and think of it as all the world’s accumulated knowledge on leadership. Now imagine scooping up the material with a shovel and sifting it all through a screen. Each scoop represents a book read, a workshop attended, or wise counsel received from a practicing leader. Becoming a great leader with this philosophy can take a lifetime.

Fortunately, Glenn Furuya has been digging and sifting for the most powerful leadership ideas for over thirty years. In The Little Book with 50 BIG Ideas on Leadership, he shares fifty of the most powerful leadership ideas he has uncovered. These “Practical, Sticky, and Transformational (PST)” ideas can be just the boost you need to take your leadership to the next level. Filled with questions, this book will cause you to pause and consider what type of leader you are and consider any changes that would benefit you and those around you.

Glenn Furuya is the founder, president, and CEO of Leadership Works, Hawaii’s leading business development and consulting company in the areas of leadership and professional development, personal empowerment, and organizational transformation. It is an organization that has been devoted to growing people, teams, and businesses for more than three decades!

Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii, Glenn’s Eastern heritage, island upbringing, and Western education form a unique three-way blend—a confluence of ideologies that is critical for success in today’s global economy.

About Author

GLENN FURUYA is the founder, president and CEO of Leadership Works, Hawaii’s leading business development and consulting company in the areas of leadership and professional development, personal empowerment, and organizational transformation. It is an organization that has been devoted to growing people, teams and businesses for more than three decades!

Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii, Glenn’s Eastern heritage, island upbringing and Western education form a unique three-way blend—a confluence of ideologies that is critical for success in today’s global economy.

With Bachelor and Master Degrees in Education from the University of Hawaii, Glenn started his career as a special education teacher, an eight-year journey that he says really taught him to lead. Faced with a classroom of adolescent children, many with severe mental and emotional disabilities, Glenn created strategies and fostered an environment that inspired these children to learn. As such, he was recognized as one of Hawaii’s “Outstanding Young Educators.”

During this time, Glenn also served as the head of advertising and assistant to the company president at KTA Super Stores, a family-owned grocery chain on the Big Island of Hawaii. There he gained valuable business experiences and insights as a key member of a team tasked with transforming the organization from a small, family-owned market to a modern retail entity.

In 1982, armed with profound knowledge in both education and business, Glenn left his teaching position and job at KTA to pursue his passion in leadership and formed Leadership Works.

Glenn is a certified Social Style and Hay Assessment trainer, has trained with some of the top seminar and business leaders of our time, including Dr. W. Edwards Deming—the father of the quality movement in Japan, and has worked side-by-side with numerous leaders and organizations of all sizes and industries. His extensive knowledge in leadership and process improvement, energetic and engaging method of teaching and his ability to reach across cultures has made him one of the top leadership experts and educators in his field.

Leadership Works offers a distinctive approach to developing leaders through consulting, speeches and a multitude of leadership workshops, including its signature course, “The Leadership Works Experience.” For more information visit www.leadershipworks.com.
