Free: Leadership: The Art of Inspiring People to Be Their Best

Free: Leadership: The Art of Inspiring People to Be Their Best
This book vividly brings to life 50 years of leadership and life lessons, told in a compelling and sometimes very personal way. A master storyteller, the author does this in 24 easily digestible chapters, starting with “character,” the basic building block for all great leaders. From there, he addresses the importance of trust, four different methods of mentoring, delivering under pressure, setting organizational expectations, breaking down cultural barriers, effective communications, leaving a legacy, risk management, and many more topics that have everyday application for all of us.

Widely acclaimed by dozens of corporate leaders and senior military leaders, he has the unique ability to connect to readers through storytelling and takeaways that anyone can then apply: in the corporate world, the non-profit community, or simply in your everyday life. Two bonus appendixes are included that are tools he personally used as a senior leader in the military: his “Philosophy of Command” — time tested over 30 years — and a self-reflection on himself as a leader titled “Whelden on Whelden.” Free on Kindle.

Free: Resilience: It’s Not About Bouncing Back

Free: Resilience: It’s Not About Bouncing Back
The power of resilience within organizations and can transform an average company into a powerhouse. Yet, even in times of rapid disruptive change, there is no manual for building resilient organizations. This book is that manual.

Resilience, left to individuals, will only ever be built by people in the moments that require them to dig deep and find it. The real power in building resilience before we need it, lies in what we can accomplish when our organizations become resilient. This book presents a simple framework for leaders and organizations to prepare for sustainable results in the face of rapid, disruption.

The power for organizations lies in the act of methodically and collaboratively building a collective resilience framework to increase their ability to thrive in the face of complex challenges for which the answer, and often even the definition of the problem itself, may not be obvious. These challenges frequently require both the organization and the leaders within them to make trade-offs in values and loyalties. Often, an individual’s resilience will ‘get them through’ such changes, but a more effective approach is to build organizational resilience before we need it.

Building resilience involves intentional preparation to increase our ability to emerge from challenges better equipped to deal with them than we were in the past–a transformation into a stronger self. For organizations in an environment of rapid, disruptive change, there is often no ‘back’ to bounce to after disruption, because by the time they right themselves things have changed.

This book presents a simple framework that can be applied to both individuals and organizations. It’s proven and it works. Free on Kindle.
