Format: Hardcover
Nice collection of leadership stories that spans decades of US history and lays out the wisdom of both the White House Fellows who became great leaders as well as the great leaders they served with during their time in the program. The anecdotes are both entertaining and informative, and most important practical and useful for Leaders in any capacity.

So while it is an enjoyable read, I will also put it somewhere "findable" on my bookshelf so I can refer back to specific lessons from time to time.

The book also provides an informative view of the White House Fellows Program itself, how to apply, and what life is like as a Fellow.

What a great book and a great value to aspiring leaders, and young people wishing to become a White House Gellow. As CEO of a very successful middle market company that I sold, and author of "Shelf Life", I feel that I have demonstrated many of the leadership lessons contained in this book. However, the one that I wish I would have had the benefit years ago, is the first lesson: "Leaders know there is more to life than work." Those stories rang true to me not onky from my days as CEO , but also my military life.
I really enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to anyone trying to become a better leader.
Thanks, AJ !

Format: Hardcover
This is my second book that I have read by Charles Patrick Garcia, the first A Message from Garcia: Yes, You Can Succeed, and he does a wonderful job of distilling the Leadership Lessons that he learned through his interviews with over 200 White House Fellows, including Colin Powell, as well as his own. I am very fortunate to have heard Charles share his insights at various speaking engagements and this book allows me to capture what can not be shared in a 45 minute speech. This book motivates me to obtain my "PhD in Leadership," as Charles describes it, to become a White House Fellow.

As a former military officer and elected official I have received many hours of leadership training. I find that Garcia's book is a complete blueprint to developing leadership greatness. The many antedotes from proven leaders captures the imagination and makes this book an easy read. Before buying any other book on business and leadership buy this book first!!! I plan on purchasing a copy for each of my four sons. It will be an investment worth its weight in gold.

As a CEO working to survive today's tumultuous markets, I found Mr. Garcia's book to provide sound insights and solid examples of true leadership. The book covers decades of experiences from those who have proven their merit in perhaps the greatest pressure-cooker of them all, yet all told it provides timeless lessons that remain both useful and relevant in our current climate. I enjoyed the read and will surely keep the book handy well into the future.

As CEO of a publicly traded diversified holding company, I am always looking for books that provide applicable insights for use in our portfolio companies. This book is chock full of useful lessons that are particularly helpful in these turbulent times. The presentation of ideas from so many different highly respected leaders in our society makes it required reading. I have ordered one for each of the management teams in our system.

I heard Charles speak not to long ago and I was very impressed with his take on leadership. I was equally impressed when I read "Leadership Lessons of the White House Fellows". Whether you are the head of your family or a fortune 500 company, the leadership lessons discussed in this book should come in handy if you are currently in a leadership role or looking to take on a leadership role in the future.

I am the president of a power company and I have shared this book with everyone on my team. It offers inspirational stories on leadership in an entertaining and engaging format. Charles identifies leadership traits from White House Fellows that are common across all fields.
