Doing the right thing is not always easy. In fact, it rarely is. This is especially true when leading people-the temptation is always there to take a shortcut. But real leadership has no shortcuts. It requires time and passion and sacrifice. Peerless: Defy Convention, Lead from the Heart, Watch What Happens showcases exactly that kind of leader, one of the select few who have figured out a better way-a way of leading that not only builds a great organization, but builds great people as well. Tom Ferguson has captured the powerful stories of ten leaders who are successful in every sense of the word-men and women who are loved by their associates and who have built lasting legacies on firm foundations. The stories of purpose, trust, imagination and faith contained in these pages reveal how leading from the heart creates strong businesses, dedicated employees, and the legendary leaders of tomorrow.
