Leadership has never been more important than it is today, when business and civic leaders find themselves leading teams through one of the most difficult times of their lives. These are times of change when we have to lead with the best of our abilities, and this book provides outstanding life-lasting insights and sound examples of true leadership. This book is an invaluable tool I will keep in my office, and will go back to look time after time when I need inspiration and guidance on how best to lead our teams and companies, specially through these very difficult economic times.
"Read it twice! Once for the great and inspirational stories, and once for the outstanding leadership lessons found in this gem of a book." - Tony Lopez, Author of The Legacy Leader, Breakthrough Thinking, and The Leader's Lobotomy
I didn't realize what an elite group the White House Fellows were (600+ appointed in 45 years). They truly are examples of some of America's best. Charles book does an excellent job synthisizing the learnings from the successes and failures of his interview group. They make for an excellent, common sense set of principles one could use for all aspects of their lives. I serve on a public company board with Charles and I can attest from personal experince with him that he lives by and models these principles which is why he has had so much success. Jim Olson
