Leadership Excellence

Pat Williams’ “ultimate leadership book” offers principles from leaders of history and the present—in business, sports, religion, and politics. Readers will benefit from years of experience and hundreds of interviews by Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, as they see leadership’s seven sides: vision, communication, people skills, character, competence, boldness, and a servant’s heart.

From the Introduction

 

In the course of my intensive leadership research, I’ve become convinced that the fundamental principles of leadership excellence can be distilled into seven basic ingredients, seven profoundly practical insights into what it takes to be an outstanding leader:

 

1. Vision

2. Communication

3. People Skills

4. Character

5. Competence

6. Boldness

7. A Serving Heart

 

These seven sides of leadership are truly timeless. It doesn’t matter whether you are a biblical king like Solomon, a Revolutionary War general like Washington, a Civil War president like Lincoln, a legendary coach like John Wooden, an inspirational religious leader like Billy Graham, a corporate strategist like Jack Welch, or a successful entrepreneur like Steve Jobs—the essential principles of leadership are always the same. They are true in every era, in every field of endeavor, and in every successful leader.

These seven principles produce magical results every time they are tried. In these pages, I’m going to prove to you the power of these seven principles to produce leadership excellence in your life. I will prove it from the lives of great leaders I have known, great leaders I have studied, great leaders of the past, and great leaders of today.

 

Every one of these seven sides of leadership is a learnable skill. You can achieve leadership excellence. In this book, I’ll show you how.

You can be a better leader

whatever your background,

age, or field of endeavor.

 

From a lifetime of searching, Pat Williams shares his leadership

discoveries that will expand your influence and fulfillment!

Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A President and COO

 

In the 1980s, the experts told Pat Williams that no one could build an NBA expansion team in Orlando, a city without an arena or a professional sports tradition. Today, the Orlando Magic exists because he exemplified the principles in this book.

Pat Williams has distilled a lifetime of leadership experience and study into the seven principles of this ultimate leadership manual. Leadership Excellence provides insight, encouragement, and step-by-step instruction to help you tackle every challenge your team or organization may face.

You’ll find intriguing stories—of leaders from Solomon to Steve Jobs—a dash of humor, and an emotional epilogue that ties all seven principles together. Leadership Excellence is a must-read for every leader.

 

If leaders in every segment of our society

would learn and practice Pat’s Seven Sides of Leadership,

the world would be a better place for all of us.

Ken Blanchard, Coauthor of The One Minute Manager®

 

Leadership is everyone’s business, and this book

will help you immensely in making it your own.
