Deliberate Leadership is a must read! From reading this book I learned a lot about myself—and about leadership—even though I led thousands of soldiers in combat. Countless times I'd told leaders they should treat their subordinates the way they wanted me to treat them but, as Ken and Mitch write, leaders should treat people the way they leaders wish to be treated. First, you must understand yourself and others. Deliberate Leadership will help you do that.

Keis and Javidi have developed a veritable and remarkably comprehensive volume that explores deliberate leadership and the centrality of purpose. Replete with mini-vignettes and personal experiences the authors send a poignant and powerful message about the importance of honoring the integrity of natural predispositions of leaders and followers. Readers would benefit from the concepts examined including self-awareness, values systems, credibility, influence, social learning processes, and the spiritual dimension of leadership. Although written for institutional and organizational leaders this book should be on the desk of all those with a vested interest in personal and professional growth and development
