    product description

    “Light a match in a dark room and watch as the light instantly overcomes the darkness. Observe the power and grace of that single, solitary flame dancing with life. Now light several candles or kindle a fire and experience the added warmth and comfort extending from that first, vulnerable flame through others. This is the heart and soul of leadership—the essence of inspiring others.”

    John J. Murphy, author of our bestselling book on teamwork, Pulling Together, follows up his bestseller with a leadership book like no other. Leading with Passion: 10 Essentials for Inspiring Others will help you find that not only are you performing better as a leader, but your team is sharing your vision and following your lead to ultimate success.

    People have debated for many years about the single most important characteristic or “ingredient” for leadership. The same endless debate might take place if we were to ask what the single, most important factor for chocolate cake is. Clearly, there is an argument for chocolate. There is also a good argument for eggs, flour, sugar, water, and an assortment of other factors, including oven temperature and time in the oven. In fact, if any essential ingredient is missing or out of balance, the cake is vulnerable. It isn’t everything it could be.

    Effective, passionate leadership requires many things. Leading with Passion covers ten key essentials that will give you the means to truly inspire and lead with passion.

      Weak On Leadership
      I purchased this book to conduct a training retreat for my Department Heads. We used "Pulling Together" last year, and I had hoped this would be as strong, but I felt as did my Department Heads that the book was weak on leadership principles, that it was repetitive and that it lacked that "punch" of leadership principles that we've come to expect in these kinds of books.

          Leading With Passion
          There were many good quotes. I would have liked to have seen more of a variety in photos.

            Highly Recommended
            It had the concepts I wanted but was short enough to be easily and quickly read.
