The world needs you to lead.
We face unprecedented challenges and rapid change at all levels of society. But the solution to almost every problem we face is clear: We need leadership that can adapt and that puts people first.
Sharing stories from the front and insights born from overcoming adversity on both the battlefield and in the boardroom, Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch offers nine impactful leadership principles to help you develop your own effective and flexible leadership style. From earning respect and working effectively with diverse teams to adapting to new technology and laying a foundation of trust built upon integrity, these principles are what set apart the leader who is merely equipped and the leader who excels.
"I believe in the power of individuals to change their circumstances, to change their environment, to change the course of their home life and workplaces, and to change for the better," Lynch says.
You have what it takes to lead the way in our ever-changing world. Are you ready to start your training?

"I have worked with Rick in helping take care of our soldiers and their families during these difficult times, and the leadership principles listed in this book are an invaluable guide on how to accomplish that goal. Those principles apply not only in the military, but also in corporate America, in academia, and even in the entertainment industry."--Gary Sinise, actor and founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation
