Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Leadership Triangle effectively illustrates how the role of the transformational leader is increasingly important in today’s world. No longer can we afford to lead with a one-size-fits-all mentality and expect to succeed or contribute on a professional/personal basis. This terrific book offers clear and precise options that a leader can choose in order to successfully transform their organization to meet the challenges of these uncertain times. It also provides many insightful examples from key leaders who model these concepts themselves. The result is a powerful read.”
-Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The New York Times and # 1 Wall Street Journal best seller, The Speed of Trust

“I love this book! I’m a firm believer in a situational approach to leadership. You not only need to use different strokes for different folks, but also for different situations. Ford and Tucker do a superb job of the latter scenario. The Leadership Triangle is a guidebook to help leaders, no matter what kind of organization, choose the right approach for the situation they face. Read this book and increase tenfold your chances of success.”
-Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

"I have great respect for Kevin Ford, and I am very grateful for the positive influence he has had on countless leaders throughout the world. I know of no one who has greater insight into the challenges and opportunities every leader faces, and his writings cannot help but have a positive impact on all who read them. I only wish The Leadership Triangle had been available when I began my own ministry. I’m sure I would have profited greatly from it."
-Billy Graham, Montreat NC

Read an Excerpt

"And, most challenging of all, the team had to transform values, which involved the essential and often agonizing work of exposing the existing values of all the involved parties—values that were often in conflict.

Those are the things that truly transformational leaders do. And, we will see, these are the things that you can do whether you are a businessperson, head of a not-for-profit or a volunteer organization, or leader of a church. The challenges that faced East Lake and Tom Cousins were unique—as are yours—but the principles of the Leadership Triangle which he practiced are universal."
