The Character-Based Leader,
This review is from: The Character-Based Leader: Instigating a Leadership Revolution...One Person at a Time (Paperback)
Great leaders lead by example. Think George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela, Michael Gorbachev, Susan B. Anthony, or Martin Luther King, Jr. Effective leaders personify and exemplify the values that characterize their business, school, church, organization, cause, or nation. That's why character matters. Leaders may talk values, but unless they walk their talk, they send out a contradictory message that undermines the cohesion and vitality of the entity they lead. "The Character-Based Leader" shows the power of exemplification in the best way possible: through a collection of compelling examples. If you're responsible for leading anything--from a family to a team to a company or a city--this book will show you how to improve your game and better serve those whom you're privileged to lead.
