Principled Leadership is my latest book.  “The principles in this book are the same principles by which Gary lives his life.  They are timeless and work in all seasons of life if you take them to heart.”  Ken Harp, Director Finance, ResponsiveED.

Principled leaders hope for the best from others, but demand the best from themselves. It is a book of timeless leadership principles for SUCCESS.

The information contained in Principled Leadership will enable you to the the best leader that your employees have ever worked for.

In this out-of-whack world, where good is labeled evil and evil is packaged as good, it is time to re-examine some of the timeless principles that are often forgotten or maligned.
