The word leadership has been grossly overused to the point that many do not know what it really means and are unaware of the personal commitment required. Today's interconnected world, with its serious economic, environmental, and social challenges, cries out urgently for real leadership, yet few know what it is or how to develop it. Beyond Belief: Awaken Potential, Focus Leadership uses seven powerful models, case studies, and research from the author s more than twenty-five years of experience to clarify the intangible psychosocial basis of organizational life so outcomes of leadership are more predictable. A lucid explanation of the way a leader s self-awareness of personal beliefs influences outcomes lays a solid foundation for pointing out how to more rapidly cause followers to gain perspective, act accountably, and rapidly align to adapt faster in the marketplace. After reading the book you will know how to step up to the personal challenge of real leadership. And as the author suggests, whether you do or not is entirely up to you.

Review:

TOM PETERS, author of the classic In Search of Excellence and many other bestsellers and world-renowned management thinker--I felt carried along a river of accumulating knowledge as I read Beyond Belief. John Grinnell has given us as good a guide for developing ourselves as leaders as any I've come across in many a year. Put simply, this book makes sense from start to finish. Bravo!

DAN DAVIES, managing director, Executive Search, Vaco Raleigh, LLC --In the realm of leadership, there are countless books and thousands of theories. John Grinnell has separated fact from fiction. This book is about leadership principles that are tested and work, the rarest find. If you are interested in maximizing your potential and that of your management team and employees, this book is your roadmap. It will take you from where you are to where you want to be.

JIM APPLE, CEO & Chairman, First Citizens Bank--Beyond Belief gives leaders at all levels of mastery a very rich concept for dramatically increasing their effectiveness and vitality. John Grinnell presents a leadership that is beyond the unconscious and self-limiting nature of our formative experience and current emotions. He relates this way of living and leading as a solution to problems within society, our government, our businesses, and our own minds and bodies. John has invested thirty years in learning and developing these insights and approaches, yet he presents them using current examples and metaphors. This book is an incredible gift to leaders and future leaders who want to plot a future with more choice, courage, and conviction. --Jim Apple, CEO & Chairman, First Citizens Bank
