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

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

‘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

“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
