9780615678450: Principled Leadership: A Balancing Act for a Lifetime

Leadership is personal. Leadership is powerful. Leaders are those people who set the tone and the stage for the life many others live. Yet, leaders are also individuals with a set of internal principles. These principles establish the basis for the decisions that leaders make. The impact then of principles determines leadership. Principled Leadership; A Balancing Act for a Lifetime (Hereafter referred to as simply Principled Leadership) addresses the values generated through the principles of leadership. What values support positive leadership? How do you get them? Where do they come from? How can a person establish a foundation that can withstand the onslaught of life? These are the type of questions Principled Leadership discusses and answers. This is not a book about religion. However, it clearly establishes that the strongest foundation one can have is a foundation balanced on the values that are found through faith, belief and the spiritual awareness and wisdom gained while living in this physical world. These values, like wisdom and honesty, become foundational for building character, not mere off shoots or accidental leaning from life. Once a person begins the journey to Principled Leadership a lot of work is required. Much of the work is internal evaluation, reconciliation, forgiveness and change. However, there are many things to do that show the world the fruit of those changes and many ways to interact with others. This interaction can be both a blessing and a hard fought effort – depending on the strength of your values. Principled Leadership takes a step toward this by establishing these principles in and as a fundamental element of leadership. This does not mean we should elect politicians who only adhere to certain religious beliefs or that religious leaders should be our national leaders. It simply means we need to return to personal leadership character that is based on those values that are spiritually based and provide us the balance we need in order to effectively live all aspects of our life. The values we find that are inspired by God are positive in all undertakings. Following those values in our leadership development and active life can only yield enhanced and improved leadership performance. This performance is what we need to change the course of our nation’s and our species current trajectory into the future. Principled Leadership is designed to discuss the balance needed between the physical reality of our life and the spiritual nature we experience as we embrace the power to be found in the principles we learn from God, and the values we derive from the those principles as we establish our foundation for effective leadership.

About the Author:

Glenn grew up in the deep-south, in Georgia. He experienced the civil rights challenges and saw firsthand how people’s beliefs and attitudes impacted their choices, which was his first exposure to the impact of leadership. Glenn joined the US Air Force and completed a 25-year career, honorably retiring in 1998. During this time he lived and worked with individuals from many different countries, religions and political persuasions. Glenn lived in Europe for 13 years, traveling and working in a host of countries in Europe and the Middle East. He used his many travels to observe and understand the interactions, similarities, needs and differences between various cultures and their value systems. He participated in and led many world-class teams. He deployed to the first Gulf War and supported NATO operations in Italy, Bosnia, Croatia and Turkey, as well as other locations. Glenn received various medals and awards for superior service and leadership. Glenn also lived in several states, experiencing various cultures within the USA, and observing the political and religious attitudes of various American group segments. These experiences provide him an excellent perspective on our shared values, politics, religion and history from a multitude of varying cultural perspectives. He was the General Manager of a large customer service and sales call center for a major telecommunications company, successfully growing the business and meeting performance expectations. He completed his first leadership development book, “Growing Leadership; Managing Developmental Chaos” after that experience. He then served with the Department of Homeland Securities Federal Emergency Management Agency in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after Hurricane Katrina, and had an excellent opportunity to observe the psychology and attitudes of those affected. He currently works as a Director in a North Dakota state agency. Glenn completed his Bachelor of Science in Business Summa cum Laude from the University of Mary in May 2002, and completed his Masters, Business Administration from Columbia Southern University in May 2004. Glenn has three other books that he self-published, “Surviving the Radicalization of America,” “Growing Leadership, Managing Developmental Chaos,” and “The Siege at Azulon.” In addition to his other activities, Glenn is an artist, poet, chef and musician. He lives in Bismarck with his wife, Kristina.
