As an executive consultant, I have used Truskie's book and leadership model to help companies of all types and sizes improve leadership and orgnnizational performance. I saw the executive endorsements on the front and back side, and I would get concurrence with all the organizational leaders I have worked with over thr past 15 years. The model works in helping company leaders shape a high-performing organizational culture. This book can be value to consultants and organizational leaders in building successful companies.

This book answers the question, 'How do leaders lead.' If leaders aren't born, how do they develop? Theory and practice come together in this text. A must for all levels of management.
