People tell you that you are a good leader. But that’s not enough for you. You want to be an exemplary leader – the kind of leader whose team will follow him or her into any situation. But how can you gain the skills that will take your leadership to this ultimate goal?
Reading Leadership Matters is the first step in the pursuit of leadership excellence. Using his life experiences as examples, Len takes the eleven principles of leadership and the fourteen traits every leader should possess—which he learned during twenty years in the Marine Corps—and teaches the reader how he was molded and shaped by some of the best leaders the Corps had to offer. His stories will make you laugh, make you feel pride, and maybe even shock you when he discusses leaders who failed their people. This easy to read and understand guide to leadership comes to a conclusion with Len sharing his most challenging leadership situation and demonstrating how applying the lessons learned from exemplary leaders enabled him to be a success in a situation where others would have accepted failure as the only outcome.
