The business and self-help shelves may be overflowing with success books, but author Libby Gill has found a totally fresh perspective on the topic of leadership: hope.

"Libby Gill offers us a roadmap to be positive and hopeful for the future. This is a must-read for those of us ready to embrace true hope!" —Marshall Goldsmith, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Triggers

Zeroing in on what she sees as the defining issue of creating a more purposeful and productive workplace, Gill explains the science of hope theory, which is "the interconnection between beliefs and behaviors," and explores how it can shift mindsets from siloed to collaborative and productivity levels from sluggish to robust.

The Hope-Driven Leader is not about feel-good theory or loaded with dry data. It's an accessible, multi-step action guide informed by the thousands of people Gill has coached in both the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds around the globe. It includes skill-building lessons based on research and illustrated by personal stories and case studies such as:

• Enhancing leadership skills
• Crafting a personal brand
• Becoming an influencer
• Managing global teams
• Navigating high-impact conversations
• Handling challenges specific to women leaders
• And much more

Whether you are a rising star or a seasoned leader in your own business, a corporation, or your community, The Hope-Driven Leader offers you a roadmap for instilling those positive beliefs and behaviors into the core of your being and the culture of your workplace. Let the journey begin!

“This is your action guide to smarter leadership, more effective teams, and bigger, better, faster results. Smart, generous, and impactful. Buy a copy for everyone on your team.” —David Newman, CSP, author of Do It! Marketing

The Deluxe Edition of Leaders Eat Last, now with an expanded chapter and appendix on leading millennials, includes over 30 minutes of exclusive video and 30 minutes of audio of Simon Sinek. The acclaimed, bestselling author of Start With Why and Together is Better delves deeper into book’s themes and shares additional examples and insights.
 
Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things. 

In his work with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why?

The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. "Officers eat last," he said. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line. What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care.
     
Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside.

Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories that range from the military to big business, from government to investment banking.
