Leadership: Achieving Life-Changing Success from Within
Take one look at him, listen to him speak, watch him act, and you'll follow him. Why? Because throughout his life and military career, Sergeant Major Al McMichael has proven himself to be a visionary who develops and nurtures ideas to fruition.... Anyone who is charged with leading, teaching, mentoring, managing or caring for people should read the inspiring story of Al McMichael in Leadership. -- Dean Mark Pizzo, National Defense University in Washington, D.C. There is only one sergeant major of the Marine Corps at any one time. It is the highest rank an enlisted Marine can achieve. From 1999 to 2003 the USMC's 14th sergeant major, and the first African American to attain the position, was Alford L. McMichael. Now, Sergeant Major McMichael shares how the values taught to him around the dinner table and in the hard times of his dirt-poor Southern childhood took him to the top of his field and made him one of the most respected and valued leaders of our time. This is not a guide that speaks only to military personnel. This is not a guide that only CEOs will cherish. The magic of McMichael's life lessons is that anyone can relate to and build success from them, because McMichael himself learned them in the most modest of beginnings: growing up in the 1950s with nine siblings in a single-parent, one-story home in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It was the best training he could have received for the Marines, and with down-to-earth practicality and an engaging anecdotal style, McMichael demonstrates how the morals, work ethic and self-discipline he learned from his mother and grandmother gave him the life skills for groundbreaking success. Practice dinner table values...Find your compass...Rely on intelligence over emotion...Prepare so you can prosper...Impress yourself first...Give power to your people...Lead from the heart...These are among the pragmatic and distinctive nuggets of truth McMichael imparts in Leadership, and whatever your walk in life, they are the foundation for making great things happen. Are you ready to experience the phenomenal results when you ask the best of yourself and those around you?

Remarkable Leadership Facilitator's Guide: Twelve programs for Creating Remarkable Leaders
Unleash leadership potential --one skill at a time Today's fast-moving world presents a challenge to organizations: Good leadership is more important than ever. But finding the time to devote to leadership development is increasingly difficult. Remarkable Leadership: Twelve Programs for Creating Remarkable Leaders was developed with these dual realties in mind. Based on Kevin Eikenberry's acclaimed book, Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing your Leadership Potential One Skill at a Time, this program helps leaders develop their potential in shorter-format workshops, each focusing on one skill at a time. A cornerstone of the Remarkable Leadership approach is the belief that leaders must be continual learners, and that learning isn't an event, but an ongoing process. Rather than a one- or two-day program, this program is designed as twelve 60- or 90-minute modules, one for each core Remarkable Leadership competency area (learning continually--the thirteenth competency--is integrated throughout each module). With this flexibility, training can be delivered one competency a month; selected important skills for a particular group can be targeted; and a variety of other flexible approaches can be created to meet the needs of the organization and individual leaders/learners. This package includes the Facilitator's Guide covering each of the 12 modules, with options for delivery in 60- or 90-minute formats, twelve separate Participant Workbooks designed to support skills development during the session and beyond, and PowerPoint slides to assist the facilitator in being successful in preparation and delivery of any/all of the modules.

Remarkable Leadership Facilitator's Guide Deluxe Set: Twelve programs for Creating Remarkable Leaders
In this learning series, Kevin Eikenberry shares a set of powerful principles, skills, and action steps that develops leaders at all levels of the organization and anyone aspiring to be a leader. With the starting framework that leaders become remarkable through learning, Eikenberry sets out to challenge the participant to be more intentional about what, when, and how they learn. The learning model which serves as a foundation for the series outlines that a leader 1: Has an experience 2: Reflects on the experience 3: Generalizes from the experience and 4: Takes action. The is an upward and continual spiral of learning. Eikenberry contends that intentionally completing the cycle of learning helps leaders learn more from every experience and will lead to stronger leadership. This is a practical and powerful set of skills that are covered in a series of 12 1 to 1.5 hour workshops. Each workshop covers one key skill. These skills include: Championing Changes, Communication, building relationships, Developing Others, Focusing on Customers, Influencing with Impact, Thinking and Acting Innovatively, Collaboration and Teamwork, Solving Problems and Making Decisions, Responsibility and Accountability, Managing Projects and Processes Successfully, Setting and Supporting Goals Achievement. The key to the learning series is the flexibility. There are 12 learning units and the facilitator can pick and choose which topics they want to cover. Additionally, there is video content for each of the 12 workshop series.
