4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By General Jack on September 4, 2012
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 ›

No photo-finish here - this is a clear winner. i'm so grateful for the emphasis on 'ethical'as a key to creating and sustaining an enduring culture. Having over 20 years of background in the field of culture change i wish this book had been written decades ago. And, the timing is perfect for those leaders that know there is something better and are ready to be the reason the essential change happens.

Thank you Bob and Gregg for giving such a simple road map. The weaving of how this all relates to the pinnacle of horse racing brings deeper levels of clarity on what it really takes to create the culture you'd most want to be part of.

Format: Hardcover
I've read a lot of different leadership books by some of the best, but Bob and Gregg really hit it on the head with this book, I strongly recommend. The values detailed through countless examples used throughout the book really resonate with the values of our company, and it's great to see it written out in this way. If all corporations were run with Triple Crown Leadership in mind, our economy would be far better and the workforce at large would be much more energized and enthusiastic. I also love the quotes they used to start each chapter. My favorite by Antoine de Saint-Exupery: "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood, and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." Awesome.

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.

Triple Crown Leadership is the new guidebook for organizational transformation. Bob and Gregg capture the importance of 'true' organizational alignment through truth of story. Having had the opportunity to work with Bob and Gregg over the years, I can assure future readers that their motives and actions defend their writings as being true stewards of Triple Crown Leadership. They are truly motivated by the establishment of excellent, ethical, and enduring organizations. This is a highly recommended read for all those interested in learning more about what it means to be at the forefront of leading from the heart.
