- Let change lead growth
- Be prepared to piss people off
- Check your ego at the door
- Push the envelope
- Let situation dictate strategy
- Challenge the pros
- Trust those in the trenches
- Prepare to be lonely

Let The Powell Principles introduce you to the principles that drove him to the top and provide you with a blueprint for inspiring anyone--including yourself--to achieve extraordinary levels of professional success.

If i owned a company I would buy every employee a copy of this, and a copy of QBQ by John Miller.
Colin Powell's principles are interesting. They are simple and follow ethical guidelines. I admire his outlooks. I generally have practiced similar work ethics and supervisory guidelines prior to learning his. However, I look forward to incorporating the principles I had not been utilizing.
The service of Amazon was right on the money as well. The purchase was delivered as promised without any "issues".
I would recommend the book to anyone who wants to perfect his leadership skills.
