From spending more than two decades alongside thought leaders such as Jim Collins and Malcolm Gladwell, as well as countless Fortune 500 CEOs and start-up entrepreneurs, leadership consultant Brad Lomenick has created a practical road map for helping anyone implement and live out the twenty transformational habits that he discovered to be common among the world’s most innovative leaders. In H3 Leadership, Lomenick organizes these twenty habits into three distinct filters he calls “the 3 Hs”:• Humble: Who am I?• Hungry: Where do I want to go?• Hustle: How will I get there?These attributes, and the habits it takes to create and nourish them, belong to the leader who is willing to work hard, get the task done, and make sure the mission is never about him or her. But becoming an H3 leader goes far beyond learning what all these are. It requires putting them into practice daily. Start your journey in developing the 3 Hs today!
After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.
