4 remarkable eBooks help you lead more successfully by leading more ethically


Honor, ethics, and compassion are central to effective leadership. Now, an extraordinary new eBook collection reveals why this is true, and how you can lead more honorably and successfully in your own organization. In Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition, Jon M. Huntsman shows how to succeed at the top, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. Huntsman personally built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. Now, he tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. Along the way, he offers a powerful reminder of why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. Next, in Lead with LUV: A Different Way to Create Real Success, the legendary Ken Blanchard ("The One Minute Manager") and former Southwest Airlines CEO Colleen Barrett help you achieve amazing results by leading with love. They explain what "love" really means in the organizational context, why leading with love is not "soft" management, how to handle inappropriate behavior, how to make "servant leadership" work, and how to sustain leadership with love. In Moral Intelligence 2.0: Enhancing Business Performance and Leadership Success in Turbulent Times, Doug Lennick and Fred Kiel show why sustainable optimal business performance requires superior moral and emotional competencies. Using new case studies, they identify connections between moral intelligence and higher levels of trust, engagement, retention, and innovation. They deliver specific guidance on moral leadership in both large organizations and entrepreneurial ventures, plus a new step-by-step plan for measuring and strengthening organizational integrity, responsibility, compassion, and forgiveness. Finally, in The Power of Communication, Helio Fred Garcia focuses on the most indispensable leadership discipline: honorable and effective communication. Building on the U.S. Marine Corps' classic publication Warfighting, Garcia how to apply the Corps' proven leadership and strategy doctrine in all forms of public communication - and achieve truly extraordinary results. You'll learn indispensable lessons from leaders communicating effectively, and from the catastrophic mistakes of business and political leaders who got it wrong. If you need to earn and win hearts and minds, you need this book now.


From world-renowned business leaders, executive coaches, and consultants Helio Fred Garcia, Ken Blanchard, Colleen Barrett, Jon M. Huntsman, Doug Lennick, and Fred Kiel
