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.

If I was a baseball lover, I would have called Triple Crown Leadership a Grandslam. I like baseball, but a horse race--now that's exciting ... and with Triple Crown Leadership, it's either a Silky Sullivan type who mucks around and finally gets his hoofs in gear and brings the stands to their feet .. or a Big Red, Secretariat, who leeaves his opponents in the dust from the get-go and never looks back. Some leaders come out of the gate a heck of a lot faster, smoother and smarter than others. Triple Crown Leadership is a winner.

The Vanoureks are the new dynamic duo in leadership--Bob with his immense experience as CEO of a billion-dollar NYSE company and son Gregg, who is an expert in leadership and teaches internationally--the wisdom is deep, the advice--incredibly practical, and take on where leadership needs to go is visionary. Throughout you will hear (and feel) their voices extensively--in their personal experience and recommendations ... and the voices of executives from a variety of companies and countries. Not only is Triple Crown Leadership written well, it is designed with ease for the eyes and mind, this goes to the top of the must have leadership book list. Odds are a 1000 to 1 that all business schools will make it required reading ...

My perspective - I am a general manager - I hold my MBA and have more years of experience than I care to admit.

For those seeking new buzzwords or 7 steps to reinventing the world, just wait - a silly business book will be forthcoming somewhere - this is not it.

I found this book to take a refreshing approach in reinforcing and recasting some of the best management concepts of the past 30 years - and it adds data and perspective to support the case for ethical, effective and enduring organizations. It is a valuable read.

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 ›

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.
