Lee Ellis is an extraordinary human being. I look forward to meeting him in person in a few weeks and hope to have him speak at Sugar Hill Church soon.
Make Every Step Count on Your Leadership Journey
How did American Military leaders in the brutal POW camps of North Vietnam inspire their followers for six, seven, or eight years to remain committed to the mission, resist a cruel enemy, and return home with honor? What leadership principles engendered such extreme devotion, perseverance, and teamwork?
In this powerful and practical book, Lee Ellis, a former Air Force pilot, candidly talks about his five and a half years of captivity and the fourteen key leadership principles behind this amazing story. As a successful executive coach and corporate consultant, he helps leaders of Fortune 500 companies, healthcare executives, small business owners, and entrepreneurs utilize these same pressure-tested principles to increase their personal and organizational success.
In “Leading with Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton,” you will learn:
- Courageous lessons from POW leaders facing torture in the crucible of captivity.
- How successful teams are applying these same lessons and principles.
- How to implement these lessons using the Coaching sessions provided in each chapter.
In the book’s Foreword, Senator John McCain states, In “Leading with Honor,” Lee draws from the POW experience, including some of his own personal story, to illustrate the crucial impact of leadership on the success of any organization. He highlights lessons and principles that can be applied to every leadership situation.”
I’m really enjoying this album. My current favorite song is “It’s Always Been You.” In fact, I had it on repeat all day yesterday. Such a powerful truth!
I usually get cold brew from my favorite local coffee shop, but this is nice to have on hand at the house. My order came with several cartons of cold brew that are easy to store and convenient to drink.
A Quote from I’m Thinking About
Good leaders know who they are—their strengths, weaknesses, passions, talents, and values. And, developing leaders always starts with self-awareness.” ― Lee Ellis
