“Peanut butter and jelly, baseball and Cracker Jacks, Ken Blanchard and Randy Conley, servant leadership and trust—they just go together. What really strikes me about Simple Truths of Leadership are two things: memorable aphorisms and wisdom, not just knowledge. Fifty-two brief chapters, each with a haiku/koan-like simplicity that burrows into your brain like an earworm; they all make such good sense, and on top of that, you remember them. Blanchard and Conley aim at making simple truths accessible and memorable, not only individually but as a whole. The reader emerges from the book with a smile, feeling enriched and wiser for the experience—an experience that will, moreover, stick with you.”
—Charles H. Green, founder, Trusted Advisor, and coauthor of The Trusted Advisor

Together with Randy Conley, they have created in Simple Truths of Leadership a jewel of a book—one filled with inspiration and powerful advice on building trust as an effective servant-leader. Read it to strengthen your relationships at work and in life.”
—Larry C. Spears, author and servant-leadership scholar, Gonzaga University
