In BEWARE THE PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS, Dr. Anthony Paustian delivers inspired thinking about leadership through an entertaining blend of humor, nostalgia and research. Through the incorporation of personal observations, life experience and collective history, Paustian encourages readers to consider a more introspective view of the necessary attributes of successful leadership, beginning with the lessons our parents taught us. As Paustian notes, leadership is more than just buzzwords and metaphors; it's about the values of resilience, integrity, self-discipline and character (attributes sometimes too quickly dismissed as "old-fashioned"). In today's trying times, he makes the compelling case that these virtues are definitely worth revisiting. For those who are tired of today's notion that traditional values get in the way of that which is smarter, better or faster, Beware the Purple People Eaters will provide a satisfying read. Don't be surprised if you find yourself reflecting on your personal leadership style, life experiences and hard-won lessons. In Beware the Purple People Eaters, Paustian invites you to do so and to apply what you learn, starting now. Like the lion, the scarecrow and the tin man from The Wizard of Oz, you may discover that what you went looking for in the first place was within you all along.
