Read an Excerpt

"And, most challenging of all, the team had to transform values, which involved the essential and often agonizing work of exposing the existing values of all the involved parties—values that were often in conflict.

Those are the things that truly transformational leaders do. And, we will see, these are the things that you can do whether you are a businessperson, head of a not-for-profit or a volunteer organization, or leader of a church. The challenges that faced East Lake and Tom Cousins were unique—as are yours—but the principles of the Leadership Triangle which he practiced are universal."
