Format: Hardcover
Having served for 35 years in the United States Air Force, retiring as a four-star general, being executive vice president for operations of a very large railroad, serving on the board of directors of six corporations, and now continuing to serve on three business boards, I've attended many university and military leadership programs and read a number of leadership books, all of which have been helpful through my careers. The Vanoureks' book is based on the authors' personal knowledge and what they learned and share through interviews with very successful leaders in many types of organizations. They "stirred" all the key leadership points into a book that is a rich amalgamation of thoughts and recommendations by successful business leaders. Triple Crown Leadership is very readable and will be valuable to new entries into the business world, mid-level managers, senior staffs, CEOs, and boards of directors. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
Triple Crown Leadership identifies five leadership principles that are essential for creating high performance, lasting organizations in any field. Each of these "big ideas" is connected to a horse racing metaphor and story, adding to its memorability and reading interest. It is then supported with numerous business examples of where it has either been applied successfully or ignored to an organization's detriment. The five practices focus on: 1)choosing the right people who fit well with your organization's character; 2)providing them with a motivating vision and set of values; 3) leading with sensitivity but also a hard edge when necessary; 4)empowering people to share responsibility and contribute creatively to improved solutions; and 5)creating a management system that aligns values, practices and rewards with consistency and fairness. After laying our this template for excellence, the Vanoureks delve into specific challenges that can cause companies to abandon their best intentions about values and culture: internal and external crises that pose a survival threat; performance deterioration that requires a dramatic turnaround; start-ups where resource constraints don't seem to allow for any cultural niceties; and organizations committed to deliver both societal benefits and financial sustainability. Finally, the authors do a more in-depth analysis of three outstanding organizations that have succeeded while embodying the five triple crown principles: Infosys, KIPP and Google. The Vanoureks have done an outstanding job of identifying the common practices of leaders who are succeeding today across a range of diverse organizations.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Triple Crown Leadership is the best leadership book I have read in over a decade. The framework is simple, compelling, and presented in a flow that will captivate you. The analogy with horse racing carries through the entire book with rich parallels coming through in every principle. I loved the way Bob and Gregg Vanourek blend their impressive backgrounds into key ideas that every leader should understand and practice.

This is a "how to" book on leadership, but it is presented in a story-like sequence that makes perfect sense. The methods are robust, and not stilted. Rather, the pragmatic ideas are easy to understand and can be translated into daily activities with some effort.

This is an important book. If you read it, the ideas will change the way you think about leadership and add considerable imagery to your skill base. I recommend you purchase a copy for everyone on your leadership team and use it as the topic of some "lunch and learn" discussions. You will find that Bob and Gregg make great "coaches" for your leadership team.

Format: Hardcover
I am an adjunct professor at the University of Denver and teach a number of courses on leadership, business and public policy. I was extremely impressed with Triple Crown Leadership in setting out the key principles for corporate leadership. Business today must be willing and able to achieve more than shareholder return in ensuring that it survives the challenges ahead of a global economy. TCL has some great stories and examples how adhering to the three principles of ethics, excellence and endurance can serve to making any business a more likely success in the long term. I would highly recommend this book to any business leader who is interested in preparing their company for the future.

Format: Hardcover
Every couple of years a business book comes along that contains depth of message, displays common sense, and which is easy for all levels of the organization to read and apply. Triple Crown Leadership is such a book. The authors skillfully use anecdotal horse racing stories to portray common business situations. Additionally they weave in in-depth research from well-known and respected organizations to drive home the theme of Triple Crown Leadership. I would highly recommend this book to others who are looking to build Excellent, Ethical, and Enduring organizations.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Triple Crown Leadership is one of those rare books a dedicated student of leadership carries with them from office to office as one travels up the career ladder. It ranks up there with Leadership Challenge and On Becoming a Leader. The chapter on Steel and Velvet was particularly riveting. Leaders make minute by minute decisions in facilitating long-term strategic plans. Knowing how to flex your strength or soften your approach are key elements to being a successful leader. After all, don't we all want to be the leader others want to follow? Well written, insightful and a gracious example of leadership in action, this is a must book for your professional library.
