Leadership Lessons from a UPS Driver Delivering a Culture of We, Not Me UPS is a household name and one of the most highly regarded American corporations by customers and investors alike. Who hasn't been delighted by a right-on-time delivery, one of the 18 million UPS makes every day? Founded over a hundred years ago, UPS has moved steadily up the Fortune 500 as so many other corporations have dropped off. So what's the company's secret? Just ask a driver! Ron Wallace was a UPS driver for six years before he rose through the ranks to become president of UPS International. In other companies that might be extraordinary, but for UPS it's par for the course. UPS has a unique people culture. It's like a family. Package loaders call executives by their first names and vice versa. The company almost always promotes from within. Lifetime employment is common. Most employees own UPS stock. Wallace credits this spirit of “we, not me” with the company's success—and his own. As he puts it, working at UPS gave him a PhD in teamwork. Instead of writing a typical business memoir that celebrates the leader as celebrity, Wallace shares vivid stories that focus on the people he worked with, the challenges they overcame, and the simple principles and practices that make up the UPS way. He exhorts his fellow leaders to grow their people, not just their business plans. The leadership style described in this book is simple and direct—and it works. The straightforward and easy-to-understand lessons provide a blueprint for an individual or company to build on past successes and adapt to future challenges. This is a must-read for anyone aspiring to become a great leader.

A year-long leadership development course, divided into short, weekly lessons, based on Peter Drucker's personal coaching program, previously unpublished material, and selected readings from the management guru's classic works, compiled by his longtime collaborator Joseph A. Maciariello. A Year with Peter Drucker distills the essence of Peter Drucker's personal mentorship program into an easy-to-follow 52-week course, exploring the themes Drucker felt were most important to leadership development, including: Leaders Must Set Sights on the Important and not the Urgent—a key differentiator between a subordinate and a chief. Management is a Human Activity—Process must serve people, in and out of the organization. The Roadmap to Personal Effectiveness—the importance of mission and doing the Right Things not just Getting Things Done. The critical importance of leadership succession especially at top ranks of the organization. Each weekly management meditation includes a lesson and a message or anecdote taken from Drucker's extensive body of work, as well as suggestions for further reading, reflective questions, and quick, easy prompts to help readers incorporate the knowledge they've learned into their daily work. A lifetime of wisdom brilliantly honed into a single essential volume by Drucker's collaborator Joseph A. Maciariello, A Year with Peter Drucker gives both lifelong Drucker fans and young executives now discovering his brilliance an invaluable opportunity to learn directly from the late master.

Leadership Lessons presents a series of object lessons on sound public affairs leadership drawn from the life of one person--Gregory R. Anrig, who died in 1993 after a forty-year career in education and public affairs. It is an antidote to the state of mind and the perceptions and beliefs that produce the thinking that government does as much harm as good. Anrig was a school teacher, principal, superintendent, manager, leader and statesman. While not a high profile personage on the national stage, he clearly had an important part to play in issues of great historical consequence. He worked at the federal level on the frontier of civil rights compliance in the 60's, and in the 70's he exerted ground breaking education leadership in Massachusetts at a time of profound social crisis. His career closed with the reinvigoration of the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey which is the world's largest educational testing organization. In these roles he displayed a caliber of statesmanship in the public forum and a brand of organizational stewardship that deserves to be noticed. He exhibited the right values and the right skills at the right time.

General George C. Marshall was a skillful and compassionate leader with a unique legacy. He never fired a shot during WWII and led no troops into battle—his brilliance was purely strategic and diplomatic, and incredibly effective. He was responsible for the building, supplying, and, in part, the deployment of over eight million soldiers. In 1947, as Secretary of State, he created the Marshall Plan, a sweeping economic recovery effort that pulled the war-shattered European nations out of ruin, and gave impetus to NATO and the European Common Market. It was for the Marshall Plan that he won the Nobel Peace Prize—the only time in history a military commander has ever been awarded this honor. Marshall's skilled combination of military strategy and politics, emphasis on planning as well as execution, and his expertise in nation-building holds lessons for military and civilian leaders today.

The Marquis de Lafayette is an icon of American—and French—history. Lafayette's life story is the stuff of legend. Born into an aristocratic French family of warriors, made lieutenant in the French Royal Guard at age 14, and married into the royal family at 16, he traveled to the colonies at his own expense to fight in the American Revolution. By age 20, he was embraced by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who became his life-long friends. Here, historian Marc Leepson delivers an insightful account of the great general, whose love of liberty and passionate devotion to American and French independence shines in the pages of history.
