What Exceptional Leaders Know

The #1 Best Selling Book for Leaders Everywhere, now in it’s second edition.
There is no shortage of leadership and management titles available to business and organizational leaders who want to improve their skills. Most of these books lack a “nuts and bolts” approach to the subject and do not offer specific and practical lessons for ambitious leaders. Simply put, they are not “user friendly”. With ‘What Exceptional Leaders Know’ we are providing field-proven leadership lessons and observations. These practical lessons are organized into six sections, each focused on a key set of high-level leadership skills.
