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.

The Confidence Factor: Cosmic Gooses Lay Golden Eggs
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.
integrity). So I did not really like the horse racing examples they used.
But still, I enjoyed the book immensely. It was all about great leadership and many things I believe in. The gist of the message is leadership is a stewardship responsibility. Leadership is long term. Leadership requires ultra dedication.
It is a book about ethics and values and what place they have in leadership and business (clearly they have a huge place and successful people and organizations have them)
One of my favourite sections was one on alignment. Alignment is much harder and more important that vision. 99% of the time is spent on alignment so figuring that part out is the key.
The points are illustrated with real world examples of businesses in various situations (like J and J and the Tylenol recall). This helps readability and brings points across better.
I loved the many quotes scattered throughout the book - it gave me lots of material for my twitter feed and Facebook updates. I had previously blogged a review on the Tao of Twitter bemoaning the 140 character limit. One quote above that limit:
"I look for three things in hiring people. First is personal integrity, second is intelligence and the third is energy level. If you don't have the first, the other two will kill you."
Warren Buffet (I like Buffet - not because of his wealth but because of his common sense and long term approach)
