Meet the Author

Bob Stone served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, where he radically decentralized authority, cut regulations, fostered excellence, and got into occasional hot water. He then led the White House effort to reinvent government. His Confessions of a Civil Servant: Lessons in Changing America's Government and Military, has been praised by senior aides to Presidents, by chiefs of the army, air force, and navy, and by the chairmen of Motorola, Harley Davidson, and TRW. Tom Peters calls the book "maybe the best text ever on large-scale organizational change. Anywhere." He is an internationally known author and speaker on ethical leadership, on leading change, and on reinventing government. He serves on the Governing Council of the Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach, and teaches business ethics at the University of Redlands. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees in chemical engineering from MIT.

Mick Ukleja is president of Leadershiptraq, a leadership-consulting firm. He helped found the Ukleja Center For Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach, the second largest university in the state. His recent book, Who Are You And What Do You Want? Four Questions That Will Change Your Life, has been praised by legendary coach John Wooden and many prominent leaders and CEOs. Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager, writes in the Foreword, "This book is powerful. If you can answer the questions in a thoughtful way, you'll come out a better person, because you'll know who you are, what you're doing, and what's going to guide your journey." He works with entrepreneurs and CEOs, and chairs the Board of Trustees of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation at the Kennedy Space Center, which oversees the Center for Space Education. He holds a B.A. in philosophy, a master's in Semitic languages, and a Ph.D. in theology.
