Overview


Many leaders remember those life-changing moments when it suddenly became crystal clear what had to be done to reach their organizations' goals. It wasn’t until Pete Luongo was faced with that one epiphany in his life, a difficult period that required him to rebalance life’s priorities and bring a new understanding to his work, that he recognized that all results are based upon behaviors appropriate to the circumstances. Through this understanding — that actions are determined by specific, well-defined standards — he developed a model for success, one that is both sustainable and that allows people to retain their personal dignity as they pursue their life plans. In this book, Luongo illuminates the ten most common obstacles to success and pairs them with the ageless principles that help readers overcome them. His straightforward advice, based on data and hard-won experience, provides an understandable and virtually guaranteed plan for improvement and achievement.

Meet the Author


Pete Luongo's career at The Berry Company spanned more than thirty-three years where he last served as President and CEO. During his last nine years he was instrumental in guiding the billion and a half-dollar yellow page-advertising agency through a period of record sales growth, numerous contract acquisitions, and the perpetuation of the nearly one-hundred-year-old company as an industry leader as well as “a great place to work.”

Since retirement, Peter has devoted himself to giving back to his community around health and human services, economic development, and education. He serves as board chair of the Dayton Area United Way, is vice-chair of the Greene Hospital Board, and is a member of the Executive Committee of the Dayton Development Coalition. He joined the University of Dayton’s School of Business as an executive-in-resident and teaches strategic planning in the MBA Capstone Program. He also serves as Executive Director of the University’s Center for Leadership & Executive Development and is a member of the University’s Board of Trustees.

    Easy to live leadership principles

    This is an easy read and well worth it! I enjoyed the book so much that I passed it on to several colleagues. The response from all of them was very positive. It is amazing how many times I hear people refer to the 10 Truths while discussing work matters. The book really does provide simple principles that support a well balanced leader.

    Develop Leadership Skills and Improve Relationships

    This book is a pragmatic view of how our professional and personal lives are perpetually entwined. Pete Luongo's concepts are uncomplicated and simple to grasp as he presents us with a guide for their implementation. His passion for life, and his belief to maximize the quality of the relationships we develop during our existence, is contagious. Additionally, the format of the book allows it to be easily read AND used later for quick reference, if necessary.

    Common Sense

    The book is an easy read, and what quickly comes to mind is - Pete has captured the essence of what we intuitively know, but never capture in specific thoughts or words - just good old common sense. The book has broad application - for life, not just the work world.

    A formula for leadership success

    This book is informative, inspiring and entertaining. Pete Luongo has led a large, successful company. In this book, he shares a management philosophy that was developed over years of experience. At its heart it comes down to caring about your people. But caring does not mean you don't hold them accountable. This book shows how you can do both, how you can set the standard of excellence and inspire others to achieve their personal best. I have heard Pete speak and I have read his book. I recommend both very highly. Now, as I lead others, I hear Pete's words ringing through my head. Hearing his message and reading this book have made me a better leader.

    Practical Personal Advise from a Business Leader

    Peter Luongo compiled a practical leadership guide from personal experience in the business world. Mr. Luongo draws on a wealth of personal experience to share his successes and challenges in his career. He demonstrates how he had to change his approach as a result of a challenged business situation as he climbed the 'corporate ladder.' His change in approach shows that winning is achieved through a caring approach to his work force. This care still requires an uncompromising commitment to succeeding with the task at hand. However, his leadership inspired and fostered commitment. The end result was a workforce of more leaders as opposed to compliant followers.
