Monday Morning Mentoring Book Excerpt:

Everyone who wants a fulfilling career needs a mentor -- someone who has seen it all before, someone who can share hard-won experiences and teach valuable lessons. In this expanded and enhanced version of his best-selling book, Monday Morning Leadership, David Cottrell packs all of the wisdom of his wide-ranging business experience into this inspirational story. Cottrell introduces us to Jeff, a successful corporate manager who has hit a major wall. Jeff has been leading his team, quarter after quarter, to great sales and better profits for several years -- until now. The tricks that used to work wonders have lost their magic; Jeff is in a slump and is at a loss to find his way out of it. Overworked, stressed, and feeling that his personal and professional lives are at risk, Jeff reaches out to the father of a college buddy, a retired and tremendously accomplished former executive named Tony. Tony and Jeff agree to meet every Monday for ten weeks to work through Jeff's problems and get his career back on track. In the course of these intimate sessions, Jeff discovers the secrets of real leadership: "Until I accept total responsibility -- no matter what -- I will not be able to put plans in place to accomplish my goals." And, "My success is the result of making better choices and recovering quickly from poor choices." Tony leads Jeff through tough lessons in how to manage his people, how to manage his own time, how to manage his superiors, and how to escape from "management land." Most of all, Jeff learns that his success is intimately bound with the success of his people and that tolerating lackluster performance in himself and others on the team only leads to discontent from his most prized and productive employees. Through Jeff's mentoring sessions, the reader meets a character of integrity who dispenses homespun but effective wisdom. Spend time with Tony and Jeff at their Monday morning meetings, and you will find yourself on the road to becoming a better leader and being more successful at work.

Corporate Risks and Leadership Book Excerpt:

The context of business has been changing for companies in recent years, and following numerous corporate and accounting scandals, many countries have increased the number of national and international regulations designed to ensure transparency and compliance with the law. Because of the existence of these new regulations, the level of control, the severity of sanctions by governments, and the amount of the fines for noncompliance have increased dramatically. In parallel, with the technological revolution in communications, business management has become more transparent, and any negative event is uploaded to social networks and shared with an indeterminate number of people. This change in the regulatory, sanctioning and technological context has forced large companies to rethink risks, investments and budgets to deal in this more complex environment. To transition to this change, some companies have included ethics and compliance programs in their corporate agenda, along with marketing and sales plans, strategies, growth targets, investment plans and/or talent acquisition. While each industry has its particular risks, in this book, the author describes the essential elements that any effective ethics and compliance program should contain. This book is a source of information that connects yesterday with today. The author shares observations and lessons of the past to suggest corporate leaders implement effective ethics and compliance programs to protect their organizations and themselves. The book covers theories of ethics but with an eye focused on practical application. Risks, ethics, and compliance are analyzed with an overall vision, connected to the reality of business life, without getting bogged down in abstract thinking or in technical and regulatory details. Ethics and compliance are disciplines that have increasingly achieved greater recognition in organizations. Thus, due to the importance of risk management in the business world and the necessary involvement of the CEO and the board of directors, it seems appropriate that executives get access to a book about risks, ethics, compliance and human resources directed not only to compliance experts but also to any organizational leader. This book is a wake-up call that allows business leaders to understand the benefits of implementing an effective ethics and compliance program that will help members of organizations to make the right decisions and act within the law. If they do, they can better prevent and react to the difficult obstacle course of risks, dangers and threats that organizations face and that may jeopardize the sustainability, resilience, and survival of companies.

The Leadership Core Book Excerpt:

Whether in the boardroom, on the battlefield, or in sports competition the difference between success and failure often begins and ends with the quality of those who lead. Effective leaders can produce outstanding team performance, inspire others to overcome adversity and challenge, and help unlock potential and fulfillment for their people. Poor leaders can cripple progress, decrease productivity and results, and drive people toward the door. Leadership is often viewed as a ‘black box’ – an unexplainable phenomenon that sits between the input of effort and the output of desired results. What does ‘good’ leadership look like, and how do we develop the ability to successfully lead? Intended for both current and aspiring leaders, The Leadership Core explores several primary competencies, as well as the concept of character, that helps leaders become more effective and inspiring. Interspersed with pauses for reflection on one’s own leadership today, The Leadership Core can be a valuable tool for both leaders at all levels.

The Leadership Quotient Book Excerpt:

Now, there is a formula for leadership, the LQ. Like the Intelligence Quotient and the Emotional Quotient that preceded it, The Leadership Quotient contains verifiable dimensions of leadership that are designed to improve every leader's performance. The Leadership Quotient makes the complex simple by fitting the 12 dimensions of leadership into a framework of leader, follower, and environment. The Leadership Quotient makes the three components measurable and practical for the reader. The "nature vs. nurture" argument is over. There is general agreement that effective leaders are prepared by nature and refined by nurture. The need for improved leadership has never been greater, as witnessed by corporate scandals, world tumult, and economic morass. The failure of ethical moralities and the dumbing down of education give clarion calls for the type of improved leadership available through the application of LQ principles. The Leadership Quotient is thoroughly researched by two leadership experts, who combined, have 37 years of practical business leadership, 45 years of formal education, and 25 years of teaching leadership at the university level. Yet, the book is accessibly written for leadership practitioners. The LQ is years of comprehensive research packaged in a simplified formula for immediate application.
