What makes for a truly exceptional leader? Certainly, leaders need people skills, execution skills, a deep knowledge of industry trends, the ability to articulate a vision, and more--they must be competent--but that's just the tip of the iceberg. What's below the waterline? What's deep inside the best leaders that makes them different?

Mark Miller contends it is their leadership character. In this enlightening and entertaining business fable, young and ambitious leader Blake Brown goes on a journey to discover the five unique traits exhibited by exceptional leaders and how to cultivate them.

This book shows us that leadership needn't be the purview of the few--it is within reach for millions around the world. The Heart of Leadership is a road map for every person who desires to make a difference in the lives of others and become a leader people want to follow.

¿Qué es lo que hace que un líder sea verdaderamente excepcional? Sin duda, los líderes necesitan don de gentes, habilidades de ejecución, un conocimiento profundo de las tendencias de la industria, y la capacidad de articular una visión; y más aún: deben ser competentes. Pero eso es sólo la punta del iceberg. ¿Qué hay debajo de la línea de flotación? ¿Qué se esconde dentro de los mejores líderes, que los hace diferentes?

Mark Miller sostiene que es el carácter. En esta fábula empresarial, clarificadora y amena, el joven y ambicioso líder Blake Brown emprende un viaje para descubrir los cinco rasgos únicos que distinguen a los líderes excepcionales, y cómo cultivarlos.

Este libro nos muestra que el liderazgo no tiene por qué ser la meta de unos pocos, sino que está al alcance de millones de personas de todo el mundo. El corazón del liderazgo es un mapa para todo aquel que desee marcar una diferencia en la vida de los demás y convertirse en un líder que la gente quiera seguir.

—Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor

—Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs

—Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! 

The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how.

‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” 
—Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com

“Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.”
—Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute

“There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.”
—Todd Nielsen, author and COO JMARK Business Solutions
