Serving others is what we do, yet when we fail to serve ourselves, we fail to create the lives we were meant to lead. What makes a great leader? Why do some professionals progress and inspire the best out of their contemporaries while others struggle to be professional? The principles of leadership have not changed over time. What has changed is how we lead. The demands of our world force us to get more out of every member on our team. To serve and lead at the highest level we must instigate both individual and collective leadership to have a compounding effect on our community.

Putting Hope to Work is their response to these questions. Drawing upon the authors' many years of research and management consulting, it presents a pragmatic approach to identifying, supporting, and sustaining hope and channeling it toward productive ends to create more vibrant, creative, collaborative--and successful--workplaces. Integrating insights from fields as diverse as anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and biology, Hutson and Perry identify the five key principles of hope--possibility, agency, worth, openness, and connection--and demonstrate how they can be developed in any type of organization. Featuring dozens of in-depth examples and personal experiences from a wide variety of organizations, as well as tools for applying hope toward effective leadership, decision making, problem solving, and communication, the authors offer a multi-dimensional approach to leadership that is both inspiring and practical, tapping into a universal desire to produce work that is as meaningful as it is profitable.
Sometimes you have to lose the life of your dreams to live your God-ordained destiny. What do you do when youve lost everything? How do you rebuild your life when youve lost the desire to live? These questions are at the core of From Zero to a Hundred, a story of hope and inspiration.
In From Zero to a Hundred, Jason Roy, a medically retired police officer turned inspirational speaker, details how he survived two near-death experiences and pushed through the pain to discover his purpose. Through life-altering spinal cord injuries, paralysis, bouts with depression, and suicidal thoughts, Jason fought to remain steadfast in his faith in God, accept his new reality, and live his God-ordained destiny.
He acknowledges that fear and doubt are normal responses to tragedy, but encourages us to step out on faith and be willing to lose everything to ultimately live the life of our dreams.

Using a US Armycentric definition of leadership that focuses on purpose, direction, and motivation, Beagle provides vivid examples and anecdotes to stress the impact of motivation on individuals and organizations. Based on twenty-two years of experience as an organizational leader in the Army, Beagle offers tips and strategies to understanding the key ingredients in the recipe for success: drive, confidence, change, listening, humility, me time, dreaming big, and investing. The Rock will help you realize a higher level of personal motivation, provide a lens to discover the motivator in you, and establish a way to inspire others around you.
Applicable to a manager who leads a force of one, the CEO who leads a group of five hundred, or the military leader who leads thousands, The Rock communicates that motivation begins from within, and it grows during a constant process of understanding yourself, realizing the conditions or environment around you, figuring out where you want to go in life, and then restarting the cycle.
1/24/00 - What will become of this quest? Will anyone care? I don't have an answer for these questions and I'm not sure I really want to. To be honest, I'm feeling a little tired of this idealistic crusade. I have no desire to make it a big hoopla event. I've been writing that the success of the Trek depends upon my committment to the principles and not the attention it recieves. In reality, however, I have been living the opposite. I have gotten so focused on the image and organization of the Trek that I have stopped simply doing it. This Trek is about exemplifying certain qualities in life, not getting on a TV show. It is about having the courage to display an example for others to follow. I don't have control of its scale (how many people hear about it), I just have control of its success ( living its principles regardless of the circumstances). If I make it home it will be nothing short of a miracle. I don't know if I will complete the goal of the 10,350 mile Trek. I do know that I believe in its mission and have to try. I may set out on the Trek, but it is the support team and the people I meet along the way that will bring me home.
Andy Andrews believes that good answers come only from asking the right questions. Through the powerful, provocative question, “How do you kill eleven million people?”—the number of people killed by the Nazi German regime between 1933 and 1945—he explores a number of other questions relevant to our lives today:
Does it matter that millions of ordinary citizens have checked out of participating in the decisions that shape the future of our country? Which is more dangerous: politicians with ill intent, or the too-trusting population that allows such people to lead them? How are we supposed to tell the difference between the “good guys" and the “bad guys”?How does the answer to this question affect not only our country but our families, our faith, and our values?What happens to a society in which truth is absent?
Andrews issues a wake-up call: become informed, passionate citizens who demand honesty and integrity from our leaders, or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. Furthermore, we can no longer measure a leader’s worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth.

Joseph P. Lash, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer and National Book Award-winning writer of Eleanor and Franklin, turns to the seventeen years Eleanor Roosevelt lived after FDR's death in 1945. Already a major figure in her own right, Roosevelt gained new stature with her work at the United Nations and her contributions to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She continued her activism on behalf of civil rights, as well as her humanitarian work, which led President Harry Truman to call her the First Lady of the World. Lash has created an extraordinary portrait of an extraordinary person.
Five years have passed since women were exhorted to “lean in.” Over that time, the world has transformed beyond all expectations. But why should anyone “lean in” to a patriarchal system that is out of date? Why not change it entirely for the good of us all?
Helena Morrissey sets out how we might achieve the next big breakthrough towards a truly inclusive modern society. Drawing on her experience as a finance CEO, mother of nine, and founder of the influential 30% Club which campaigns for gender-balanced company boards, her manifesto for new ways of working, living, loving and raising families is for everyone, not just women. Making a powerful case for diversity and difference in any workplace, she shows how, together, we can develop smarter thinking and broader definitions of success. Gender balance, in her view, is an essential driver of economic prosperity and part of the solution to the many problems we face today.
Her approach is not aimed merely at training a few more women in working practices that have outlived their usefulness. Instead, this book sets out a way to reinvent the game—not at the expense of men but in ways that are right and relevant for a digital age. It is a powerful guide to success for us all.
