BOOK EXCERPT:

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest managers of all time, with five Champions League titles to his name. Yet his approach could not be further from the aggressive theatricals favoured by many of his rivals. His understated style has earned him the fierce loyalty of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti reveals the full, riveting story of his managerial career - his methods, mentors, mistakes and triumphs - and takes us inside the dressing room to trace the characters, challenges and decisions that have shaped him. The result is both a scintillating memoir and a rare insight into the business of leadership.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Tortoise Usually Wins is a delightful exploration of the theory of quiet leadership. Written for reluctant leaders, it interacts with three key biblical images of leadership - the leader as servant, shepherd and steward - and links them with some of the key virtues of quiet leadership - modesty, restraint, tenacity, interdependence and other-centeredness. Exploding the myth that the good is the enemy of the best, it argues that the reverse is more often true, with images of unattainable perfection crippling competent people from getting on with the task of doing genuinely good things. The book strips leadership of some of its mystique, arguing that the bulk of leadership is about helping groups decide the right things to do and then getting on and doing them in an atmosphere that brings the best out of others. Brian Harris is the principal of a highly regarded theological seminary and also pastors a thriving local church, so the book carries the wisdom of both professor and pastor, satisfying the reader both intellectually and practically. These insights are supplemented by interviews with significant quiet leaders from around the world, ensuring a rich feast for prospective and current reluctant leaders. 'Books on leadership are today two a penny. Just occasionally, however, one of these books might stand head and shoulders above most of the others, and to my delight The Tortoise Usually Wins falls into that category. Furthermore, so many books on leadership are written for natural leaders; whereas, as the author makes clear, most churches are led by "quiet leaders" who know they are not great, but nonetheless, are "tenacious and committed to the task and willing to work co-operatively with others to achieve it". I can see many church leaders benefitting from this book. I warmly commend this unusual book.' Paul Beasley-Murray, Senior Minister, Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford; Chair of Ministry Today UK

BOOK EXCERPT:

Finally, A Down-to-Earth Process for Removing Barriers and Obstacles to Discovering Your Inner Leader Trish Zenczak is one of America's truest survivors! As a survivor of childhood physical and sexual abuse she has overcome the need for angry rages, spiteful behavior, feelings of abandonment, and resenting those who left or victimized her. Remarkably, she found a way out of her promiscuous, partying lifestyle filled with destructive relationships by making wise and healthy choices to "clean up" in order to live a more positive and influential life of helping others. She attributes her success to her strong faith in God and to the discovery of her inner leader-an inner leader we all can access to help us triumph over anything. Her story is an inspiration to anyone --from those who have lived the life of abuse and abandonment to those who deal with typical life obstacles such as forgiveness, anger, or relationship issues. Along her journey many have asked her, "How did you beat the odds? How did you keep yourself from going down the wrong path? " Through this 30-day journey Trish shares wisdom and insight for dealing with life's obstacles and pain while giving us practical and real-life skills for climbing out of the pits and ruts of life. She also encourages us to allow God to work through us to discover our own quiet leader so we may share our story with others. Take the challenge as you ponder thought-provoking readings and questions that will require you to consider reasons, actions and excuses that hinder you from moving forward in life and having a more developed Christ-like mindset. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Trish Zenczak offers the timeless wisdom of the Scripture rightfully applied to the painful experiences of her life. Caution: This is not a book for people looking for another self-help expos from someone who's never been there...this is real truth colliding with real life, in a way that is powerful, filled with purpose, and genuine healing. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to let the Lord shape the past into an amazing future." -- Dr. E. Dale Locke, Lead Pastor, Community of Hope Church

BOOK EXCERPT:

Most of us think of leaders as courageous risk takers, orchestrators of major events - in a word, heroes. Yet while such figures are inspiring and admirable, Harvard Business School Professor Joseph Badaracco argues that their larger-than-life accomplishments are simply not what makes the world work. What does, he says, is the sum of millions of small yet consequential decisions that men and women working far from the limelight make every day: how a line worker for a pharmaceutical company responds when he discovers a defect in a product's safety seal; how a manager deals with a valued employee suspected of stealing; how a trader handles a transaction error that will cost a client money. Badaracco calls them "quiet leaders" - people who choose responsible, behind-the-scenes action over public heroism to resolve tough leadership challenges. These indidviduals don't fit the stereotype of the bold and gutsy leader, and they don't want to. What they want is to do the "right thing" for their organizations, their coworkers, and themselves - but inconspicuously and without casualties. They do so by being baldly realistic about the complexities of their own motives and those of the dilemmas they face. In today's fast and fluid business world, nothing is as it seems. And they know it. Drawing from a four-year study of quiet leadership, Badaracco presents eight practical and counterintuitive guidelines for confronting situations in which right and wrong seem like moving targets. Grounding each strategy in an engaging story, he shows how these "non-heroes" succeed by managing their political capital, buying themselves time, bending the rules, and more.

BOOK EXCERPT:

What do you think is common between George Washington and the Buddha, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Florence Nightingale……… **Now available also in Portuguese and Spanish** That they were great leaders? True. But did you know that they were also all introverts? From Prasenjeet Kumar, the Amazon #1 best-selling author, comes an outstanding collection of uplifting stories of the greatest leaders of all times that have used their powers of introversion to rewrite History. But hold a second. Can Introverts really lead? And if yes, can they just lead, as any imbecile hereditary heir to the throne is expected to, or provide legendary leadership? * Historically, introverts have NOT only been successful as leaders but ultra-successful! And most of them are so extremely well-known that you will be surprised. * More importantly, they succeeded not because they could overcome their introversion, BUT because of their introversion. * Introverts have been successful in supposedly all extroverted fields of leadership be it military, politics, academics, or religion. Some led their troops into the battlefield while others led quietly, non-violently or passively. So what has made these introverted leaders so successful? * That they had a rich vision or imagination. * Next, these leaders took small but concrete steps to realise their vision. * Third that they had an analytical mind. They took the time to think, plan and act decisively. * And finally, they led more by action and example than by words. So, ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to immerse yourselves into legendary tales of courage and valour shown by quiet, shy and sensitive men and women from all around the world. You will read how these quiet leaders faced the biggest challenges and threats of their lives and how they rose from the ashes like the legendary Phoenix bird but quietly. Like a "Quiet Phoenix," as this series of books is called.
