Lead By Greatness is truly a landmark book for leaders at every level. On a recent vacation, I read David Lapin's book and was highly impacted on every level of my personal leadership. His soul-based principles of leadership have the power to transform leaders on an individual level as well as shift cultures towards a more significant path along with their success. If you are looking for a book to shape and redefine you leadership, this is a must read! If you lead an organization, your team will be inspired and they too will be led to greatness.

Lead by Greatness is not just another book on business or change in a company. David Lapin introduces unique concepts such as "Spiritual fingerprint" that will not only impact how you work but how you live. The real life examples make the book relevant and entertaining. A must read for those managers with status and postion that want to set themselves apart and become truly great leaders.

One of my Top Ten business books ever! Through thorough research and knowledge of human nature and business, David gives us a blueprint from which we can truly take ourselves and our company's to a higher level of success and more important, to significance. Yet in one word, he crystallizes this significance is based upon your character more than any other virtue, skill, or talent. Invest your time in readying (and studying) this book only if you care to reach your greatest potential as a leader and a human. If not, just stay where you are and allow those of us who are applying David's wisdom to ourselves and our firms, and you can then read about us and our blessed lives. Thank you, Dave, for what should be mandatory reading for any leader of any organization.

I have had the opportunity to not only read this book but also interact and learn with David and the coaching team at Lapin International in a corporate workshop. If you read this book AND apply what you learn, the opportunities are boundless. Learning how to be "heroic" instead of "defensive"...striving to inspire vs motivate employees...revealing my Leadership Fingerprint and identifying my unique purpose...make a difference in how I lead every single day. Buy this book and really live it....you and those around you will all benefit. Thank you, David!

Format: Paperback
There is a concept in this book which I had not seen expresses so clearly anywhere else. The concept is very simple and straightforward but it is the underlying foundation of this book. Numbers don't drive performance, they simply measure performance. Think about that for a minute.

In our business and personal lives we put a lot of emphasis on numbers. In sales, we need to "make our numbers", in business we need to "hit our target numbers" and in our personal lives we often have numbers in the form of salary or net worth we use to measure our success. We often make the mistake of thinking that these numbers will drive us toward our goals. But as David Lapin, the author of Lead by Greatness points out, numbers are simply a way to measure performance. The numbers do not drive performance.

This book is all about discovering what drives performance - on an individual level and on a company level. According to Mr. Lapin, we all are unique and each person has a different set of drivers. If we are going to change our behavior and get the maximum results for our efforts, we must connect with our individual drivers.

Unfortunately a lot of businesses use numbers as a driver. But this only works on a short term basis. When we use numbers as a driver, they are usually fear based and fear is not sustainable way to motivate people.

Mr. Lapin describes our individual drivers as our spiritual fingerprint. In the book he gives a method to determine your individual drivers - your spiritual fingerprint. While the method is easy to understand, it is not simple. It requires a lot of honest introspection. It requires you to be able to look at reasons behind your actions. This is an exercise which will take some time and will probably evolve over time.

I found David Lapin's book, Lead by Greatness Lead By Greatness: How Character Can Power Your Successto be a breath of fresh air. Pragmatic and practical, yet brimming over with deep insight and wisdom, the book brings together the powerful themes of achievement and spirituality with which so many executives grapple. David's real-world writing style and helpful examples make the book an easy read, but one which calls the reader back again and again. My copy is already getting dog-eared! But in the process of reading and re-reading this fine work, I am growing as a leader and a person.
