9781626561984: The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do (UK Professional Business Management / Business)

In this new edition of their classic business fable, Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller get at the heart of what makes a leader successful. Newly promoted but struggling young executive Debbie Brewster asks her mentor the one question she desperately needs answered: “What is the secret of great leaders?” His reply—“great leaders serve”—flummoxes her, but over time he reveals the five fundamental ways that leaders succeed through service. Along the way she learns:

  • Why great leaders seem preoccupied with the future
  • How people on the team ultimately determine your success or failure
  • What three arenas require continuous improvement
  • Why true success in leadership has two essential components
  • How to knowingly strengthen—or unwittingly destroy—leadership credibility
The tenth anniversary edition includes a leadership self-assessment so readers can measure to what extent they lead by serving and where they can improve. The authors also have added answers to the most frequently asked questions about how to apply the SERVE model in the real world.

As practical as it is uplifting, The Secret shares Blanchard’s and Miller’s wisdom about leadership in a form that anyone can easily understand and implement. This book will benefit not only those who read it but also the people who look to them for guidance and the organizations they serve.

Review:

"My challenge to you is simple: learn The Secret--then apply The Secret. If you do, your leadership and your life will be transformed forever!" --from the foreword by John C. Maxwell, author of the bestselling The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and founder of INJOY "You don't have to be older to be a great leader. The Secret shows how to lay the foundation for powerful servant leadership early in your career to maximize your impact." --Claire Diaz-Ortiz, Head of Corporate Innovation and Philanthropy at Twitter, Inc. and author of Twitter for Good and Hope Runs "In The Secret, Ken and Mark weave a simple yet compelling tale that contains profound truths. If only we all knew The Secret!" --Laurie Beth Jones, author of Jesus, CEO and The Path "When you learn The Secret, don't keep it to yourself. Share it and use it with your people. It will make a difference in their lives and their performance." --Donald G. Soderquist, former Vice Chairman, Wal-Mart, and founder of the Soderquist Center for Leadership and Ethics, John Brown University "If you know The Secret, both relationships and results will prosper. It's a perfect move in your life from success to significance." --Bob Buford, author of Halftime

About the Author:

Few people have impacted the day-to-day management of people and companies more than Ken Blanchard. A prominent, gregarious, sought-after author, speaker, and business consultant, Ken is universally characterized by his friends, colleagues, and clients as one of the most insightful, powerful, and compassionate people in the business world today. From his phenomenal best-selling book, The One Minute Manager (coauthored with Spencer Johnson)--which has sold more than thirteen million copies and remains on best-seller lists--to the library of books coauthored with outstanding practitioners--Raving Fans, Gung Ho!, Leadership and the One Minute Manager, Whale Done!, and many others--Ken's impact as a writer is extraordinary and far-reaching. Ken is the chief spiritual officer (CSO) of The Ken Blanchard Companies, and international management training and consulting firm that he and his wife, Dr. Marjorie Blanchard, founded in 1979in San Diego, California, USA. He is also a visiting lecturer at his alma mater, Cornell University, USA, where he is a trustee emeritus of the board of trustees. Ken and Margie, his wife of more than forty years, live in San Diego, USA. Their son Scott and daughter Debbie hold key positions in the Ken Blanchard Companies.
