By John Hamm.

Often, when leaders experience trouble, they look to blame an outside source or expect a small tweak to right their ship. But many times they’ve actually lost their grip on the very basic foundation of leadership. The environment may change, but no management trend can displace the core laws, proven over centuries, of excellent leadership.

Unusually Excellent is an essential resource for leaders that brings these fundamentals together in a new and comprehensive way. This book will help leaders at any level keep their focus on the bedrock principles that will make them extraordinary.

It’s thoroughly practical, a day-to-day primer for achieving and maintaining the highest level of leadership, for today and for a lifetime. The book is written for all leaders who need to develop and renew their leadership skills
