The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership

The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership

The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership is a first of its kind book. It effectively addresses and shines a light on the two areas of your life that can cost you the most. They are Leadership and Relationships. If you’re leading people without the benefit of relationship, you could be bullying them, and if you’re loving people without the benefit of relationship, you could be lonely.

Most people will tell you they’re a leader, but few people can define leadership. How can we maintain the integrity of it or even recognize it without being able to define it? More importantly, how can we teach it if we can’t define it? Your organization has multiple levels of people and there must be Continuity of Leadership through them. This represents an intangible ‘throughline’ that your profits and productivity will follow because the people that work for you are affected by it.

I don’t lead with words. I coach my team with words, I mentor them with Statement challenges, and lead with compassion. In this book, you will learn how to employ Applied Leadership to coach and mentor people to reach their next level. In turn, they will help you to reach your next level.

Establishing relationships with those we lead will keep them engaged with our vision long after the meeting has ended. Your vision of tomorrow is bigger than today, and the potential of you people is greater than their problems. You must believe this because aside from an extreme shortage of resources, the only reason teams fail is because of their leader. Know this, before you get people to change the way they think you must change the way you think. I’ll share that in detail with you.

Finally, I cover Emotional Intelligence. Leadership skills and emotional intelligence parallel each other, but they are not the same. People are more inclined to follow relationships than a leader! If you can occupy both these spaces in someone’s life at the same time, you possess The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership. $9.99 on Kindle.

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.

Bamboo Strong: Cultural Intelligence Secrets To Succeed In The New Global Economy

Bamboo Strong: Cultural Intelligence Secrets To Succeed In The New Global Economy
Bamboo Strong is not a book about leadership theory or philosophy, although it is backed up by proven scholarly research. It is about leadership in action.

We are living in an age when our workgroups are more diverse than ever before, and there is an increasing need for flexible global leadership across borders and cultures. This book focuses on you, on what you can do to develop and adapt your behavior for all cross-cultural situations.

It provides guidance, insights, and personal examples to motivate, inspire, and reward you by taking specific actions to develop your cultural intelligence. However, this is not a book you can skim through hoping to pick up a few pointers. The perspectives it offers are incremental; the vision it presents grows broader and deeper the more you read. David shows us that to become successful Bamboo Leaders we must develop both resilience and flexibility, just like the bamboo bends with the wind but is rooted in strength.

Transformation is achieved through daily practice, discipline, and above all by embracing diversity in our daily actions without losing our authenticity. $0.99 on Kindle.
