Product Details


“Again, Timothy Clark has captured a complex topic with elegant simplicity. His character and competence dimensions and the four cornerstones of each offer timeless principles that will enable all leaders to fulfill their potential. His artful writing captures images and offers guidance that will enable any aspiring leader to be better.”
—Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor of Business Administration, University of Michigan, and Partner, The RBL Group

“This book will be the cornerstone of MBA programs and leadership training. It is packed full of practical real-world examples from the production floor to the chaotic decision-making dens of CEOs.”
—Michael Goold, EdD, Chief of Police, Rancho Cordova, California 

“This book provides new and seasoned leaders with practical tools for leadership development. It’s a great reference that offers fresh insight combined with compelling stories. You will find breakthrough concepts and ideas that you can put to work right away.”
—Murray Manzione, Director, Leadership and Professional Development, NVR

“As a high school calculus teacher, I honestly did not see how this book would apply to me personally. I love teaching, and I don’t have aspirations of becoming a principal. However, Timothy Clark’s description of a true leader is what every devoted and caring teacher is striving to become! If all teachers were to genuinely put into practice the ideals described by Clark, the learning environment in classrooms across the country would change dramatically.” 
—Craig B. Smith, calculus teacher, Lone Peak High School

“I have known Tim for nearly twenty years. He never ceases to amaze me with his ability to synthesize and inspire. This book offers powerful guidance for leaders. I am eager to apply what he teaches.”
—Eric L. Denna, Chief Information Officer, University of Maryland

“Tim’s book challenges us to have the courage to consistently model true leadership. As a parent, I think the most important place to get it right is at home.” 
—Libby Macomber, Partner, Advantage Performance Group, and mother of teenagers
