Praise for Remarkable Leadership

"Kevin accurately reminds us that whatever our job title or position, we are all leaders and have the potential to become truly remarkable. His belief in us and our ultimate success is real and can be read on every page. This belief is inspiring and empowering—as you read these pages his belief in you will build your own belief, an important ingredient in any successful learning journey."
—From the Foreword by Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles

"Remarkable Leadership is a must-read for anyone wanting to improve their leadership skills. I highly recommend this book."
—Ivan Misner, New York Times bestselling author and founder of BNI

"Kevin is a true believer that leaders can be made. He has identified the key behaviors that remarkable leaders exhibit, and more important, he has given us practical ways to develop these behaviors. This book will encourage those who desire to become remarkable leaders."
—Steve Boeckman, president and CEO, Great Lakes Energy Cooperative

"Remarkable leaders are not born—they are made and developed. That's why I loved this book. Kevin Eikenberry shares a set of powerful principles, skills, and action steps that develops leaders at all levels of the organization and anyone aspiring to be a leader. If you want to be a better leader or develop skilled leaders within your organization, then read this practical and powerful leadership manual and follow the action plan."
—Jon Gordon, bestselling author of The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy

"Kevin Eikenberry does a masterful job dissecting the key elements of effective leadership and makes a convincing case that becoming a master leader is always a work in progress, even for remarkable leaders. Becoming an effective leader means becoming an active learner, acquiring skills best mastered through carefully planned activities and practice. This book can help leaders at all levels build and strengthen their leadership skills."
—Vic Lechtenberg, vice provost for Engagement, Purdue University

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Predicated on the notion that leaders are not born, but are made and remade and made over again, author and consultant Eikenberry provides a guide to honing leadership skills that’s succinct and sensible, demonstrating that leading is as much about listening, asking questions and empowering others as it is about charisma and vision. Thirteen chapters enumerate what remarkable leaders do—"learn continually," "communicate powerfully," "influence with impact," "think and act innovatively," etc.—and how they do it. In hopes of narrowing the gap between those who aspire to remarkability and those who’ve already achieved it, Eikenberry provides plenty of "Now Steps," exercises for evaluating and improving one’s position that can be implemented in short order. Obvious but edifying techniques include storytelling practice, journaling and building a network of well-nurtured relationships. Eikenberry also offers online resources ("Bonus Bytes") tied to specific points in the text, available on the book’s web site. A solid leadership primer, this book will instruct, if not exactly inspire, anyone looking to manage others more effectively. (Sept.) (Publishers Weekly Annex, September 2007)

    Comprehensive, common sense approach to leadership development

    This book is a great resource for leaders interested in their own development and for those responsible for organizational leadership development efforts. It is easy to skim, comprehensive in detail, and packed with great tips. I particularly liked the bonus bytes website site for extra resources.
