A top coach shares twenty-four principles of leadership drawn from his experience founding and running his company—and shows you how to “go pro.” Each of the chapters in Pro Leadership focuses on a pro leadership principle required to be mastered if a leader desires to “go pro”—taken from the yellow legal pad Andrew Wyatt kept in the center drawer of his desk during the twenty-four-year history following the founding of his company. Each time he learned a lesson, he would write it on the legal pad. Many books have been written on leadership. Andrew has read many, and believes aspiring leaders would benefit from doing the same—after all, leaders are readers. Pro Leadership is meant to add to this already valuable library, with three goals: To offer a fresh perspective on the vital role of leaders To help readers change the way they think about leadership To inspire, to equip, and to encourage leaders to “go pro” Pro Leadership benefits from something that can’t be bought: the wisdom of experience, both good and bad, gained over a long and rewarding career. Now leaders of the present and the future can embark on their own journey with the guidance of the founder of Andrew Wyatt Leadership LLC.

"In Professionalizing Leadership, leadership scholar Barbara Kellerman lays out a plan to remedy the field's vagueness by advocating testing, certification, and regulation that befit a true profession. She takes a historical view to examine how our values have shifted and why the endeavor of leadership has diminished in most institutions, with the exception of the American military. The twenty-first century has largely been about expanding the rights and education of the many, but has left comparatively little focus on leaders-that is, the few. Though many have ambitions to become successful leaders, the leadership programs they are offered are too easy to get into and insufficiently rigorous once students are admitted. Leadership studies, Kellerman argues, must build on a solid intellectual foundation and recognize the distinctions among educating potential leaders, training for leadership, and developing great leaders over time. Professionalizing Leadership illuminates the pitfalls and potential of leadership education, and outlines a logical sequence for professionalizing the field"--
