About the Author

As a Canadian – now living in Switzerland – Mark McGregor has roots in the world of hockey. Having worked for many years as a player, coach and manager for top teams in Germany and Switzerland, he also had the opportunity to work with Team Canada at six Spengler Cup tournaments. Since leaving the professional hockey world in 2003, Mark has been a leadership trainer and coach at the St Gallen Business School, the St Gallen Management Institute, and McGregor Leadership Center GmbH. Running over 1000 seminars for leadership and team development with key-note speeches and training workshops around the world, McGregor also offers intense leadership camps and off-sites at his training centers in Inzell, Germany and Kenora, Canada. Ten years of work, research and reflecting on this book began with a 3-month sabbatical and ended in a totally unique concept that includes his experience working in sports and with business leaders and management teams. His education (University of Manitoba, Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Physical Education) provided an ideal foundation for the work he does today. This was extended with further education as a trainer and speaker in Australia and Canada. Early on, he identified the link between high performance in sport and high performance in business as there are many parallels between these two worlds. His passion is leadership development. This includes coaching, team vision, team work, motivation, high-performance, communication and psychology of winning. Mark believes that the development of leaders and leadership is the competitive advantage. The core of his philosophy is that leadership development is an inside-out process. It begins by defining clear values and creating a mission on a personal level. This leads to effective leadership on a professional level.

I first learned about Mark's principles during a seminar and was very pleased to now be able to read up on them as well. The book is very different (in a good way) from many of its kind. Not only because it combines an educational topic with a novel-style book. But mainly because it addresses not only the professional side of a person by teaching leadership skills, but it really addresses the entire personality and offers a truly holistic approach. I have benefitted from this book not only as a manager but also as a person. Not only in my professional but also in my personal life.

Leadership starts with ourselves, and Marks Being on Mission shows what can happen when we are at first not aligned with our values, and then how we can benefit once we find our true authentic selves. We must walk the walk as well as talk the talk. I love the style of this book which makes it an easy read and one that explains the principles in a simple and clear way. I highly recommend this book :)

Being on Mission is not your typical leadership book. Mark McGregor takes us on the journey of Michael Weber. Michael’s story is a compelling, typical tale of the follies of middle management. There is a bit of Michael in all of us. By taking the reader through Michael’s journey from personal crisis to holistic leadership, Mark McGregor makes his leadership philosophy personable and applicable. Filled with practical leadership gems and coaching tips throughout, the book not only illustrates the 10 Principles of Leadership & Life and the whole person model but provides the opportunity to relive Mark McGregor’s energy-laden, life-changing leadership trainings. Through Michael, Mark reminds his readers that leadership is a choice. Whether senior executive, career starter or sports coach, Being on Mission is the ultimate leadership book for anyone who’s willing to make that choice. This book will change the way you look at leadership and will be a loyal companion to help you stay on mission.

The author’s personal energy and ‘get it done’ attitude shine throughout the book in the relevant story examples as well as the specific processes he offers for impact in the business world. There is a lot of material presented, so readers will likely get best benefit through re-reading and using the paperback version for note taking, marking pages, and quick spot reviews of particular points of interest. Kindle version is definitely good, though, for on-the-go handy travel reference.

I am a parent, spouse, teacher and personal development trainer. I am also a firm believer in the the power of positive thinking. When you read this book you will likely connect with many of the struggles and feelings on a personal level within your own life. Only a fool would "go it alone" when they feel stuck an in a rut. This book has so many positive ideas for an individual to realize that its never too late to hit the reset button towards a more rewarding life, relationship, or career.
The most important gift you could ever give yourself that continues to appreciate throughout your life is your own personal development. Being consciously aware of who you are and understanding that you can absolutely change your results is huge when it comes to human potential. This book is a great read that can help you or your company strive to live a better more balanced life.

Mark McGregor is that rare individual that knows how to guide us to finding our own "best way". He has worked with thousands of people in his leadership programs and has uncovered valuable insights to inspire, motivate and lead us to being the best we can be. His approach in this book is to teach through story-telling, and it is so much more interesting and thought-provoking! I know Mark personally and I can tell you he lives his life according to the principles in his book and sets a great example for everyone he touches.
